WELCOME TO THE POETRY SOCIETY OF INDIA
DEAR ALL POETS

ATTENTION PLEASE

The goal of this group/website THE POETRY SOCIETY OF INDIA is to create a space for all fraternal poets especially from India or of Indian Diaspora to share their work. Poets may post original poems and comment and respond to comments about their work. Though no limit is imposed to post poems each day, but to make the group truly active and vibrant each brother-poet should review atleast two posts of the other fraternal poet-friends. You will kindly appreciate providing constructive review/feedback is as important for a poet as writing and publishing poems. This is the time-tested way to help the process of mutual learning and cultivation of excellence.

Please be respectful but be not afraid to offer critical comment as a way of constructive feedback. If you like the poem, record your ‘like’. A ‘like’ wouldn’t be deemed a comment.

Furthermore all members please feel free to invite as many of your poet friends to the group who share objectives of
the group in the true spirit of mutual sharing of their finest and best poetic talent and treasure-trove of creative writing.
May God bless us all.Amen!
