Author biographies?

I’ve been thinking about putting optional very short (say two line) author biographies on the site, either following the poems or as a separate ‘Contributors’ page. Some past submissions have come with biographies, sometimes in far too much detail, but other open sites, including some I’ve featured in myself, include short biographies. I think I may suggest that in the guidelines.

  1. As a reader, I like to have some idea about where else a poet has published, if at all, and to have some sense of a person. If I have time, I’ll click on a link to another site to read more work by the same person or to read an interview. I agree that biographies should be kept short!
