Hi Andy, Think I need lots of help. h2g2 seems a wide open forum for writers. So it would take little bit of time for be to get used to things. Meanwhile, I wrote few poems which I would like to share. But how to do it so others can read. Please help.

For poetry, or other writing which doesn't attempt to meet the <./>writing-guidelines</.>, the above isn't very good advice
If you are keen to get published on the front page but wish to avoid dusty responses from jaded researchers in PR you might do better to try A1355195 Hitchhike your way into the Edited Guide! There should be a few there who can offer assitance in creating a suitable entry for peer review. Alternatively , as you have apparently found out <./>thepost</.> is a good place to get poetry published
