A place for members to post their lyrics if they're looking for constructive criticism.


Lyric Critique Forum Rules

>Please use the “Policies” link at the top of the screen to read General Policies.
>Remember that these lyrics are only going to be kept up here a maximum of 30 days. Keep a backup of your work.

Rules for Posting a Lyric:
1) Please critique 2 or more lyrics for every lyric you post.
2) Please post only one lyric per day.
3) If your lyric is adult-themed ( i.e. contains overt sexuality or obscene, offensive language, etc.) please tag it or mark it clearly as such.
4) Please indicate the intended genre below the title of your lyric, and also what kind of a critique you're after. Is this a lyric that you'll be promoting commercially? Is it a song you wrote simply because you wanted to and you'd like to make it better? The more info people have, the better they'll be able to give you the kind of feedback you're after. And please PLEASE note - if you're not really after critique at all, don't post here. The Artist's Cafe is happy to read the lyrics for completed songs. This is the place to post if you want honest feedback and are prepared to take what is given (what you do with it, is of course, up to you).
5) It is polite to acknowledge critiques, but please don’t overdo it by “bumping” your thread to the top too frequently.
6) If you revise the lyric, please give a date and post on the same thread, or folks will unknowingly still comment on the old one.
7) Please be sure to visit other areas of the board to both learn and spread your knowledge.

Rules for Critiquing a Lyric:
1) The purpose of this forum is to promote better lyric writing by providing encouragement and constructive feedback focused on improvement. Strive to be courteous and respectful in your critiques, keeping in mind that we all come to this forum with different perspectives, genre preferences and levels of experience.
2) Offer constructive criticism and suggestions you think may help the writer make the most of his or her vision of where they want to go with their lyric.
3) If you think something really works, say so. Make an attempt to say why you think it does. If you see areas you think could be improved, explain why you believe they need improvement and offer suggestions, if you have any.

Anonymity can make us forget that there is a person at the other end of our critique. Imagine, if you can, that you are speaking to the writer face to face.

Thanks!
