Feedback from Readers

One thing about putting one of your own poems on your blog or site is that you often get an immediate reaction, even if people are rarely critical. On the other hand, if you publish a poem in a magazine, you rarely get the chance to find out whether readers enjoyed it, or otherwise.

However, Iota magazine has a feedback page on its website, in which readers can record their feelings about poems from the latest issue. What everyone else thought might be another matter, but it was good to hear that at least one reader, Ronnie Goodyer, enjoyed my poem. I also see that Brian Daldorph appreciated Positive by fellow blogger poet, Arlene Ang.

More magazines should do this.
