Anne Sexton - her work and her life
Community moderated by dirtywhiteboi, retrospektives and grrrlesque.

This community is for people who are interested in discussing Anne Sexton - her life, her work - anything.

Whether you are already an Anne Sexton fan, a relative newcomer or a complete newcomer, I hope you will enjoy this community. If you are a newcomer to her work, there will be a lot of posting of her poems and links to websites with basic information about her, so I hope there will be something for everyone here.

Post her poems, photos, questions, opinions, discussions about anything Anne Sexton-related! Feel free to post any Sexton-inspired poems of your own if you have them.

We will also have a Sylvia Plath Day. Where anything Plath related will/can be posted, also a Plath poem will be chosen by a vote from members to be discussed on SP day. SP day will be every Friday of the week. A list of poems will be presented by the MOD's to members every Thursday with one chosen for SP day friday.
