In recent comments about this new arrangement, Anthony French, the creator of Poetrydances.com explained:
“We are very pleased to be working so closely with WritingRoom.com- we see the Site as one of the most vibrant, friendly and accessible out there. Additionally, the standard of poems reaching us from the Site is highly impressive. This may be in part down to the broad array of ‘expert’ guidance made available to its members. In offering this guidance to help writers develop and improve their craft across so many areas, WritingRoom.com has presented itself as a truly excellent partner. We are confident that the read requests coming in from WritingRoom.com will steadily grow with time; bringing increased exposure for its writers along with the two sites themselves. We look forward to working more closely with other sites able to offer such a great platform to their members. ”
Lindsay Preston, creator and CEO of WritingRoom.com also recently voiced thoughts on the relationship between her site and Poetrydances.com:
“WritingRoom is thrilled to have established such a strong reliance with another website so dedicated to helping writers succeed. PoetryDances is a top-notch site and a must-visit for all poets. We are honored to have PoetryDances scouring WritingRoom for poets to add to their site and we are more than pleased to have a "PoetryDances Read Request" button on WritingRoom to help encourage and support writers and their dreams. We look forward to a productive future encouraging and supporting writers with PoetryDances.com.”
Poetry as mentioned can also be submitted directly to Poetrydances.com along with links to great poems found by users themselves. Additionally, the Site accepts general read requests, which allow its staff to visit and read the work of specific writers on various poetry sites or blogs across the Internet.
