Input soughtEdit

I've made a comment at Wikipedia talk:Notability (people)#Creative professionals guidelines pertaining to notability criteria for writers. I think members of this project (particularly those interested in contemporary poetry and living poets) could bring valuable perspectives to the discussion. Cynwolfe (talk)

Peer Review for O Captain! My Captain!Edit

I've opened a peer review for Whitman's poem "O Captain! My Captain!" at Wikipedia:Peer review/O Captain! My Captain!/archive1. If any users familiar with writing articles on poetry could comment, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Eddie891 Talk Work 13:02, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Boundless trivia at The Lady of ShalottEdit

I have removed most of the "cultural" reference sections of this article, which comprised bare mentions without context. See Talk:The_Lady_of_Shalott#Cultural_influence. They were largely restored by (talk · contribs · WHOIS). I don't see what these mentions add, but rather than revert outright, I request comment from the members of this project, as well as the IP. Thank you. Kablammo (talk) 14:43, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Great example of WP:CRUFT. See also WP:POPCULTURE. --Midnightdreary (talk) 14:48, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Draft:Lillian-Yvonne BertramEdit

This draft was up for G13 deletion but I think Bertram may meet notability WP:NPOET criteria. Leaving a note here with those who may find the subject of interest and perhaps develop the article further. S0091 (talk) 19:45, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

COI Edit Requests for Larry Beckett pageEdit


I am working in a COI/paid relationship with American poet and lyricist Larry Beckett. Though he has been writing poetry for most of his (73 years of) life, that section of his page is sorely lacking. I am requesting additions to his page in this area as well as his songwriting section (to come). The emphasis right now is on his songwriting career with Tim Buckley. The article also needs MUCH help with formatting. I welcome assistance with both the new information and turning the page into a good one. If anyone can provide feedback and help with getting edits made to his page, I'd greatly appreciate it! Best, LeepKendall (talk) 18:33, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Anna Laetitia Barbauld Featured article reviewEdit

I have nominated Anna Laetitia Barbauld for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 20:07, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
