A place to share poems, stories and blog posts that are worth sharing...
Logo for in-and-out


Sometimes I stumble across a fabulous piece of writing on this site, and I'm just in awe of the talent that the people on this site has.  But I got to thinking - there must be so many amazing pieces that I don't accidentally stumble across.  And thus, this idea was born.

This is the place to share a poem, story or blog post that you think should be seen and appreciated by more people.  Please share work here that you think is of particularly high quality or that particularly speaks to you or touches your emotions.  This is not a contest, and there are no prizes or reviews being awarded.  It is just a place to share and find writing that we love.

Note, if you are after a review of your own work, share it at "The Shameless "Plug" Page or "The GC+ Shameless "Plug" Page instead.  This is not the place to request reviews.

If the item was written within the current calendar year, consider nominating it for "The Quill Awards using "2020 Nomination Form for Quill Awards.

There aren't many rules, and the main one is to be reasonable and not spam this activity with multiple posts.  To clarify:
*Bullet* You can share your own work but please keep it reasonable.  I would consider one a month reasonable, but it's not a rule.  Just share your best work, not all your work.  You might share two in one week and then nothing for a year.  Be considerate of others.
*Bullet* You can share anyone else's work.  Again, share the best pieces you read, not all the pieces you read.  Be considerate of others.  Every time you post (once we reach the 100 post maximum), your post pushes another post off the board.
*Bullet* The item can be from any year.
*Bullet* The item can be of any rating.
*Bullet* The item can be on any topic.  Having said this, if I deem an item to be offensive (in terms of being bigoted, intolerant, defamatory or similar), I reserve the right to remove it.
*Bullet* Please use {bitem:} format for static items and {lentry:} format for entries because this way the author is clearly visible.
*Bullet* This activity is not for other activities.  It is for poems, stories, articles, blog posts and the like.  It is not for forums, contests, etc.
*Bullet* If sharing a blog post, please link to a particular post, not the entire blog.

Please do stop by often, even if you have no items to share, and take the time to read and appreciate some of the items posted here.  You might not appreciate all of them, but that's the way art works.  Not everyone loves the same thing.  But I'm sure you'll find something here that you'll enjoy and be glad to have found.
