    Greetings all.
    I have recently done some work on what the differences are between poems written by amateurs and those written by professionals. Essentially, the most significant characteristics of " professional" poetry is that it is more concrete and contains less sentiment than poems written by " amateurs" . I would be curious to get feedback on these findings. The research is available at: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2208452.
    Looking forward to your responses,
    Michael Dalvean

      Technically speaking " professional" means you make money from your art, trade, or writing..... right? I write but for myself. If I could write poems (or books) that others wanted to rea ... more

      We have to ask ourselves though, what makes someone a professional poet?I really think that what is in the poetry, how poems are written, is what makes a poet labeled professional. It is when a substa ... more

    Transparent Golem

    In a cold of space there is no sound
    That in mischief can be found.

    Prank on those who think it's not
    Just another scoundrel act.

    Hurt on those who can't adapt.
    They must perish or be trapped.

    Look alike their dreams must be.
    Deuce won't sleep, so why won't thee.

    Keeping sane - it is not hard,
    'cause in space there is no sound.

    Art Foundation Manifesto

    Foundation- pep golden locomotive;
    For we are legion, arisen. Make stand!
    Denounce intellectualize ism!
    Make way for artist revolution!

    Out of the ashes we declare emotion ism
    gifting to society a new eternal oxyopia!
    Beyond the establishment discord course,
    phoenix expostulates for it's cause.

    When artists creativity has reached Zen-
    Extirpate Maya; Zenith's true rebuker;
    break free from ancient archons' bonds!
    feed not the dreaded snakes of Medusa.
    denounce draconian isms spoon fed lies!

    Stray left;
    serendipity!

    Advance right;
    Predicament...

    Problem
    fixer;
    cement
    mixer!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Oblivion; eddies, tender tit-
    illation, spearheaded fluctuation;
    egressing from throat's abyss, our Father
    and Mother's virgin tongues lock in tranquil bliss.

    Por que brilliance bore membrane, Por qué?Porque!
    without porqué explodes synergies sin-
    gularity. Theories relativ-
    ity; therefore E=MC²!

    Check this out peeps, though a little rough...your advice and criticism is would go a long way to smoothen my writings
    Quietly bending my pride,
    for you to become my bride
    so as to have a smooth ride
    till a child comes our way.
    Take this not as dried
    or too crunchy fried.
    But rather be mild,
    and see me as wild
    with no where to hide
    'trying to pass the tide
    created by your dad...'
