It might seem obvious, but I always start by questioning whether they want constructive feedback in…

No, I don’t think that’s too obvious! That’s why I created Fresh Darlings — because elsewhere on Medium positive feedback or no feedback is the norm. So Fresh Darlings offer a space where it’s understood that a full range of feedback, including constructive, is welcome.

Medium’s limitations on format are so frustrating! That’s actually one reason I’ve been publishing less here recently — because I’ve been trying new work that explores mid-line gaps, indents etc. and I can’t do that here. Medium is a simple and pretty elegantly designed platform, but it’s also obvious that it wasn’t built for poets.

Thanks for your insightful comments!
