Post stress-based (accentual-syllabic or accentual) poetry at The Deep End for advanced critique, close reading, and frank comments. Work should be well developed, not an early draft. If you feel uncomfortable with close attention and emphasis on craft, or attention to the standard or lack thereof of your critique especially by TDE moderators, then post at Metrical. Your work may be moved at the moderators' discretion.
