Default Need to help my cousin with his poetry

Hello everybody, in todayís world each one of us have some or the other ways to express our talents. There are a wide range of people with different talents and here I am to help my cousin feel better. He has interest in writing poetry but the problem is a place where he can find enough exposure. I donít believe that he will get a straight forward or a quick response but may be a way into the poetry community with inputs from others.

Any help will be appreciated.

Yeah man, that sounds like the main problem with any emerging poet/songwriter/writer/etc. The most fulfilling path I have come to know is start small, start local. Find some coffee shops, open mics, etc. A local, tangible fan base always leads to something solid. Also, start up a webpage. Something like a blog, or a writers community page where ideas can be expressed, critiqued and shared. Just make sure your boy gets his stuff copyrighted (whether it be at an agency or just mail it to yourself). With getting exposure/admirers of your work, its always hit or miss, give or take. Hopefully it works out for your cousin. Hope this could be some help for ya, peace!

There is much online content to educate you about this. I think that your friend needs to be a bit more exposed to the online world so that he can select the best sources for his poems. But, in my opinion I would advice your friend to consider visual poetry which is a network for poets to make their work handled with a touch of creativity. There are members there who add a magical touch, which is motion graphics, video, photography, paintings and other features that gives your poems a new look and a way to present itself with. I hope that you would love to see your poetry presented in the form of visual poem.
