What's up, Gabriel Duncan here. Poetry Editor at AwesomeDude.com. I updated the Poetry Corner Website last week. I'm pleased to announce that we have two more poets. Aaron Bergeron and Alex K. And, if you haven't heard enough about it yet, I've made changes to the submission guidelines. Just added more requirements and stuff I think will make it easier for both sides.

The Poetry Corner Website can be found at Http://poets.awesomedude.com
