I'm not sure I qualify as a new poet any longer. I know I have relatively little experience, but a seemingly huge output. I am honored to have friends(fans) enjoy my offerings, and some few who ask My advice.
the best off the top of my head advice I can give is USE SPELLCHECK. and use the proper form of the word that is a homonym  Use Maid instead of Made if speaking of a young lady. Use Soul instead of sole if speaking of the spiritual center of a person. Remember your words once published will always be attached to your name. Be proud of your calling and the product you put out.

I am a grand father 19 times over (20 and 21 are cooking right now). I am surprised at the number of teens that follow me. and I am honored. 
Thank you for your consideration.

"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled [poets] to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean."  Socrates
