Hello Poet Gang 😊!
Happy first day of Summer everyone, the heat has just begun.
We were so happy with the responses to our first meeting, and we’re hoping to continue the fun, challenges, and writing. We also want to continue to grow our poet family, so keep spreading the word!…[Read more]
Oof I’m early yay!
I’m doing good. Trying to get over the fact that I’ll be starting high school this fall. 😬 If any of yall got any advice for that I’m all ears.
For the summer, I’m hoping to get started on that novel I was talking about last meeting as I am still in the outlining and planning stage and just to do more soccer stuff in general.…[Read more]
Oooo you have an awesome birthday!!
My GAD has a social anxiety aspect too, so I totally get where you’re coming from. One of my worst fears is also being looked at, being the center of attention, etc.
I can’t wait to read your book whenever you are ready to share some of it!
As for high-school, I can empathize with your nervousness. I’ll be in…[Read more]
Thank you so much Ginge! This is really helpful advice, and yes I will definitely let you read some of my book when I actually have some of it finished lol!
I’ve been holding up decently well. Lots of ups and downs, but hey. I’m here, so I’m happy. That’s all I really want.
My family is going camping twice, I have three online summer camps lined up, and my family and I are going to a smaller beach town for a few days in July.
Greatest fear? Being hurt by someone I love, especially a friend.
Sometimes being here is the best we can do, I know how you feel.
Ooh those all sound really fun! What summer camps are they, if you don’t mind me asking?
I definitely understand that fear- especially if it happens once, then can you have a hard time completely trusting other people…
Ah, I definitely feel that- it’s hard for me as well to be…[Read more]
Ahhhh that’s great ginge! I have just the poem. Congratulations Effie!
I hope you’ve been good! I have basically no more work for the summer so I’m just chilling. My birthday is September 10th.
☀How is everyone holding up?
Not great, but I’m doing my best
☀Any Summer plans or wishes?
I want to have an amazing sleepover picnic thing with my frie…[Read more]
Congrats to @EFFIE! Yes, Justice is a perfect theme for this month, everyone remain aware!
Ooh, it’s always nice to just be able to relax for the summer!
*huggles* I’m always here if you want to talk about anything- that goes for everyone.
A picnic with friends sounds super fun!!
Those are two really understandable fears- failure is really painful for a lot of people I know, and it’s pretty easy to worry that your friends aren’t…[Read more]
Oh wow thank you! Now I feel bad for commenting so late.
Justice is a great theme. Um . . . I might try and think of something. Maybe maybe not.
Welcome new members! We’re glad to have you!
My birthday is May 20. I have not been working on my slideshow. Better do that.
Um. I don’t think I could think of any activities. I’ll do the closing remarks,…[Read more]
It’s great that your library is doing drive-through! Mine’s doing curbside pickup, so that definitely makes life a lot less boring.
I know… It really bugs me when I see people out in public without masks, not social distancing at all, just disregarding all guidelines… *sigh*
Awww, guinea pigs are always so cute!!!
You definitely deserved it 🙂
Hello, I’m good! Summer is my favourite season so there’s a few things I want to do! I’m planning to have a water fight with a couple of friends and a barbecue once lockdown is over! What about you? I don’t have a greatest fear, there’s just things I’m scared like the dark (I don’t know why) and spiders. My least favourite part of the pandemic has…[Read more]
Ooh, those both sound really cool!! Personally I’m thinking a picnic kind of thing with a few friends (socially distanced) would be one of the things on my to do list for this summer. Ah, that makes sense.
It’s been nice talking to you more recently, although it really does suck not being able to see irl friends, I know that’s one of my least…[Read more]
ALL THE SHIPS HAPPENED!! WHEN I FINISHED I WAS CRYING SO HARD….SOMAN MADE HOPHIE HAPPEN IN THE BEST WAY TOO!!!! HE LEFT US CLUE AFTER CLUE, AND MOST OF US GOT THEM!! ALSO TAGATHA WAS BEAUTIFUL!! HESTERDIL, WILL+BODG, AND JARIC WERE WRITTEN SO SNEAKILY I CAN’T! AHHHHH
This is an information post for the poetry contest on Trans Tuesday (which includes transgender, genderfluid, and non-bianary)!
What do I do?
Write a poem relating to the theme (Stuck in the Wrong Body) and submit it on the doc linked below (more instructions for how to do that on the doc- any type of poem is fine). The judges will…[Read more]

Hello Poet Gang 😊!
First off, we want to thank you for joining our club and making our dream a reality! We’re so excited to start this journey with you!
Now, without further ado, welcome to our very first meeting!
We went to remind you all that we post once a month, and the dates are…[Read more]
*hugs* I love purple as well, it’s such a mystical color. I’m glad you like the theme! We thought it would be a fun place to start, and I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
To be honest I’m tired, but that’s mostly because I just did a whole lot of soccer stuff earlier.
Mostly I’ve been doing a lot of soccer and writing. I’ve been doing a lot of plotting and outlining for a book I’m writing, and hoping to get published. (High hopes I know but a girl can dream)
If I could…[Read more]
That was awesome! I will begin my brainstorming XD
I’ve been ok but definitely stressed bc well everything is Crazy
I usually play basketball which helps a lot and also hang out with you guys which of course helps ❤️
I’d say like a dark blue with swirls of gray and turquoise, the color of an ocean right before or after a wave has crashed
I nee…[Read more]
That makes sense, the world and everything is a rather crazy place nowadays it seems, plus everything’s very busy!
I’m glad basketball is helping, sometimes just going outside does wonders for your happiness. Plus it’s great that we can help 🙂
Ooh, that’s a very pretty color- it can hold a lot of different meanings and emotions, I would…[Read more]
I’ve mostly been doing soccer in my backyard.
My book is based a little off of a show that I watched with people who are known as Inhumans (they have a special gene in their DNA that allows them to manifest inhuman abilities hence the name.) There is a secret school known as the School for Inhumans that they can go to. Erika is the main…[Read more]
I like the prompt.
There was a lot of information on that prompt, so I’m not gonna respond to it all at once, but I’ll do the tempurature prompt.
I’m pretty good.
I’m not too busy, but not extremely bored either. A library near my house is doing drive through, so I get to read actually books. Also, off topic, I am so excited for book 6!
I think…[Read more]
I’m glad you’ve been pretty good!
Ah, that’s awesome that your library is doing that, mine started doing a similar thing recently and it makes life much less boring- I think everyone’s really excited for book 6, it’ll be awesome to see how Soman decides to end the series!
I think a lot of people are going stir crazy, honestly- there are so many…[Read more]
We decided to keep it on view only unless it was shared with you to hopefully avoid vandalising, since we want to keep this a safe space for everyone-
If you’d like to join, do you have an email address we can share it with? (you can comment it here or tag me in your activity, or email Ginger or I- anything that works for you 🙂 )
SKYE I MISSED YOU!! And yes, we need your email to share the doc with you 😀
I’m so many days late, it’s not even funny. Oh well, though.
I’ve been spending a lot of time with the Reader’s Story and Council of Elders stuff, so I’ve been busy. I’m good, though.
My mood… I’d say a misty yellow. I’m happy, but tired. Very pleased with how things are going in life in general.
Love the prompt… Dreams are something which…[Read more]
Ahh and I’m so late to respond to your comment it isn’t funny- sincere apologies for that, it just have gotten lost in my notifications.
That’s a great color, I’m really glad you’re pleased with how life’s going, or at least were when you wrote this. 🙂
That’s a beautiful description of all of the different types of dreams there are, and so very t…[Read more]
I was wondering if I had lost the notif for this somewhere, I’m glad you’ve seen it at last.
Been super busy and going through my notifications so slowly…sorry for being very late and for giving you all this notification long after you’ve forgotten about this post, I’m sure 😅
I feel like I’ve burnt myself out these past few weeks…an unfortunate mood that seems to plague me at the end of every school year. So happy that it’s pride…[Read more]
Hey! So good to see you 💙.
Quarantine has turned things sideways for everyone I think haha. Deep blue is a wonderful color, and I totally get the changing moods. I’m glad you’re working on a poem, I can’t wait to read it 😀.
Yes, Pride Month!!!!!!!! I’m so excited to co-host the trans poem competition!! It’s going to be such a fun week…[Read more]
I suppose I should do one of these too, so here goes: ASK ME YOUR BURNING QUESTIONS!
This is a “get to know me” type thing, so feel free to ask me anything. @/gris was the first one to post this sort of thing for the election, but make sure to check out all the candidates’ speeches!…[Read more]
What type of candy represents you and why? (Like I’d be a marshmallow because I’m sweet an gooey on the inside lol)
That’s an interesting question, I love it 😉
I’m probably dark chocolate with raspberry creme. I have a hard but rich (as in deep personality) shell with a soft, bright, sweet, yet slightly tangy center.
Is there a story behind your username? Or if not, why did you pick it?
Yes, there is in fact a story behind my username. It’s both literal and sentimental. I do have natural red hair, but that’s not the main reason I chose @/theginger as my username. It’s storytime folks:
When I was in elementary school, I was best friends with a boy named Jonathan. He changed his name, so I’m not worried about…[Read more]
Wow. That’s . . . intense. I’m sorry that happened to your friend.
I don’t think I’ve ever asked this to you.
What’s your favorite color and why?
I don’t think you have either Shadow, which is odd because we’ve known each other for a while!
My favorite color is light indigo. I generally gravitate towards the cool toned colors because they match my appearance, and I love the mystical vibe they emit. I’ve always loved blues and purples, and indigo is a mix of the two. I prefer lighter shades…[Read more]
Oh heck Isa, we all know how I see myself haha 😅.
I’m good at reaching people. I have this calling to help those in need, and there’s a little voice in my head always telling me to go out to assist others. I don’t like to see people suffering because of my experiences, so if there’s anything I can do to remedy that, I will. I’ve always been…[Read more]
What separates you from other candidates? What’s your favorite site memory? If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live? Is a hotdog a sandwhich?
Well, I have a way of connecting with people that’s different from the other candidates. My relationships with many users are definitely different than those they have with the others, but I also haven’t been involved in a huge scandal 😅. I’ve stayed true to myself.
I would live in Scotland. It’s just so beautiful and green! I went there once and…[Read more]
If you can change one thing in your past what would it be?
What do you think about the Council of elders system?
If you were a color, what color you would be?
I would change the fact that I got too deeply involved with my harasser I think. Honestly, changing something in the past would be changing something that became an important part of me, but if I had to choose one thing, it would be that.
I love the League of 13 idea! It gives so many more opportunities for users to get involved in the site…[Read more]
If I was a color, I would be a shimmery cerulean I think. It’s more of a medium blue and soft on the eyes, kind of like how I try to find a happy medium and put kindness above most other traits. I’ve always found blue to be a mysterious, almost ethereal, color, which is a bit like me I suppose. I also think I’d have a bit of sparkle because…[Read more]
ErmMMmmM. What is the most incredible thing that has happened to you?
If I’m being honest, there are a lot of incredible things that have happened in my life. I’m going to go with one that is book related. One of my favorite authors is James A. Owen. He’s not only a writer, he’s also an artist. He can draw with both hands due to a car accident that left his right hand in shambles. He’s one of the most inspirati…[Read more]
Hi, TheGinger! I have a question(s): What is your favorite animal? What animal do you think best represents you?
I’m also sorry for what happened to your friend. I hope he’s okay now.
I think a caracal cat best represents me. They’re a smaller species of wild cat with reddish fur and tufted ears. I’m pretty short, I have red hair, and I’m an introvert. Cats are very opinionated, but domesticated cats are a little too friendly with people. I only open up to select friends, and I like to be alone to think. I generally scope out…[Read more]
Huh! Interesting! A Caracal Cat, now that I have read your response and thought about it, does fit you!
It’s Ginger here with an exciting announcement! I mentioned in my Council speech that I was working on a project with @leilamofwoodsbeyond related to poetry. In the spirit of all of these new opportunities for the site, we dug in our heels to get this new club ready for release. We are finally ready to reveal our beautiful c…[Read more]
That’s totally fine Amee, but we’d love to have you! I’ll tag you for the posts 😁
Could I join? If so, then my Gmail is [email protected]. Don’t judge, my mom made it for me.
Tag me!! I don’t feel comfortable posting my email here, but I’m pretty sure Leila knows it, so could u add me?
I’m not sure this will work, because it’s my school email, but here it is: [email protected]. If it doesn’t work, is their any way to participate without the doc?
Effie is a great name! And yes, you can be tagged for the posts and participate in the activities. You can also create a slideshow with all your work, and I can put it on the doc so people can check it out ☺️. Thank you for wanting to participate!
Actually… I think I’ll give poetry a try. Might as well since I’m still technically stick at home 🙂 Here’s my email for the doc: [email protected]
This is amazing! Please tag me for everything and here is my email: [email protected]
I’m doing this Disney villain poem kinda thing right now, so this would be an amazing opportunity to practice!!
I’m so excited! I might join, most likely I’ll just enjoy reading other people’s. here’s my email: [email protected]
We’d be so happy to have you join and/or write!!! I just added you 💙
Awesome! I’ll definetely be checking in reading those poems!
Cool! I’m excited for the club! Can you tag me? And here’s my email: [email protected]
Even though I don’t really write poetry I’m excited to read others!
Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe during this difficult time!
My name is Ginger (along with many other nicknames I proudly sport), I’m just about 16 years old, and I joined this community in 2017 during the “Golden Age”. The first thing I noticed about the site was the kindness and acceptance rooted in the very bo…[Read more]
That was beautiful! What is the council of elders though? (Sorry I’m so clueless)
The full post about it should be in @/thecovenforever’s activity!
Here is the link to my slideshow haha, it wouldn’t let me post all the links!
Thank you everyone for the support, it really means a lot!
That’s great Ginger! I remember the first google hangouts with Jordan (or Buckethead). That was an amazing speech and I’m glad your going to try to get one of the 13 spots!!
Shadow!! Thank you so darn much, and it’s so good to see you!!!
All the nominations are on the Open Chat doc, I believe. A lot of people have been nominated so far, so I’m really excited to see how this all works.
@lilybug567 here is a full list!
It’s really good to see you as well! We haven’t talked in a while either so yeah. And Lilybug, I don’t think I’ve been nominated but Cove, Ginger, Yami have been nominated and have made the speech so far. I don’t know the others since I don’t have discord.
Can someone explain this whole council and nomination thing to me
The full post about it should be in @/thecovenforever’s activity, so I’d recommend checking there first 🙂
Ooh, I remember Jordan (I call him Kitty lol), is he still active or something?
Anyways, yes Ginger, I love your poems and is truly moved by some of them, I still have your slideshow lol
That’s totally okay :). So, as you know, we used to have School Master and Dean elections to decide the leadership of the site. Unfortunately, there was a lot of issues that occurred because of the elections, and we had a lot of fights over who won, who deserved to win, etc. To try and remedy that, @/royalfude and @/thecovenforever came up with…[Read more]
Someone give me the doc to Open Chat, I don’t have the link.
it’s basically a council made of thirteen people that will organize events, mediate, peace make, things lie that
Can someone give me a list of people being nominated? I’d like to vote.
See above shade, I posted the list. And here’s the link to the doc
I know that, I was asking what you meant by “LAUREN I LOVE YOU BUT ITS A FOUR”
Oohhh that makes sense. I always mess up on Coves tag and write ‘for’ and then have to redo it in the comments lol
Congrats on the nomination! Gingeth that was beautiful <3
Ginger how did you come up with such a beautiful speech? I’m having a hard time writing mine. . . If you don’t want to help that is a-okay.
Hey lily! I’d be happy to help you write a speech! You can take some inspiration from mine if you’d like (check my activity)
Ofc I’m willing to help! I’d be down to look at yours if you wanted a second pair of eyes. For mine, I just made sure to talk a little bit about myself, how I started on the site, what I love about the site, what I’ve done for and on the site, and why I want to be on the council. I also talked about specific traits I value or bring to the table.…[Read more]
Thanks! . . . I kind of have one started. . . Do you want me to tag you in my actvity to read it?
YES!! I need as many people as possible. Can you go to my activity to look at what I have so far?
I loved your Ginger talk! I know I never spoke to you but I think you are a wonderful person! Call me Asia.<3
A baby’s laugh at two weeks old.
Hand in hand down a castle road.
Moving away and then back home.
Trapped inside her own glass mold.
She’s in a bubble with no way to see outside.
She’s wrapped up in the darkness of her mind.
She can’t see the pain I have inside.
She can’t recognize the hurt she’s caused in kind.
I remember what we told.
Thank you everyone, it’s pretty awesome to see y’all 💙💙💙. Also, it’s pretty freaking cool that people scroll through my activity to find these things. You guys give my work meaning.
I like it! I am on your activity as a spoe and as a member of the Poem Gang.
But what if I want to let go?
There’s a freedom in falling,
No reason to feel or think.
Destinations are calling,
Reality is not on the list.
I wish that wings would take me places,
Away from the bustling streets.
Imagine the wind and all the blurred faces,
The open air pushing away under my feet.

Hello and welcome to 10 Facts about Ginger! I remember doing something like this months ago, but it’s obviously gone because of Open Chat. I didn’t realize I was so mysterious, but I shall try…[Read more]
YESSSSSS I ONE MILLION PERCENT AGREE WITH NUMBER 8
honestly I wish my bedroom looked like IKEA because…well, you’d understand if you saw it
honestly, I don’t like orange and chocolate either. blech
ALSO HI GINGY I HAVENT SEEN YOU IN A WHILE
YES NUMBER EIGHT I COMPLETELY AGREE!!!!!
I wish my bedroom looked like Ikea ****
Gingey! I haven’t seen you in a while! Okay, so firstly, yOU ARE beautiful! But how don’t you like orange and chocolate?! Also, I love mushrooms on pizza too but not pineapple that much.. It’s kinda too sweet! And I also agree with number 8!!
Hello! I’m not sure why I don’t like it, I just don’t like the strong orange flavor with chocolate. It’s weird because I like raspberry and chocolate.
oooh raspberry and chocolate is great
honestly I just think that the citrus mixed with the dairy sweetness is just eh
I like Terry’s Chocolate Orange! Also, raspberry and chocolate is so good! I prefer it with white chocolate thoughhh (how do you not like white chocolate XD)
my grandpa loves this omg I’ve never had them but I ate a orange rind once and coughed
Thank you so much for tagging me, this was so much fun to read! 😄🥰 Ooooh, and thank you, Ginger, for mentioning Dysautonomia ☺️ Something new for me and really interesting to know about!
Anyone who’s gonna make a list about facts about yourself, if you want to, don’t hesitate to tag me! I love learning and relearning about y’all awesome beans h…[Read more]
Thank you!!!! It’s so good to see you again too, this place wasn’t the same without your signature positive and caring energy!! 💙💙💖
Gingey! Good to see you here. Thanks for tagging me, and it really was fun to read! Agree with number 8, I’m also a straight A student. Wish my bedroom looked that neat, I might be a perfectionist but my room is oretty messy…

also omg nooo you’re pretty, and i’ve always had a bit of a thing for redheads HAHAHA
I’ve always sort of wanted a twin, but one of my friends was born on the same day (Haha, I’m 16 hours older than her, though 🙂 ), so I guess that sort of makes up for it XD
I have officially learned something new today, I had no idea what the Dysautonomia spectrum was until about a minute ago, so thanks!
I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH 6 AND 8 (Except my…[Read more]
Now I really want to try that, hehe
*goes to ask parents to have pizza tonight* lol
We went to Dublin and took a train from there to York I believe. I’m Irish, so it was nice to connect to my heritage!
And I’m so glad you learned something new!!! Dysautonomia definitely needs more awareness, and now I can provide a good platform for it haha
HH IM LATE
I hate brussels sprouts and scrambled eggs too ngl- never tried orange chocolate though-
Also, I didn’t know about dysautonomia either!
