Hey duders. I'm a longtime fan of the site, since the beginning actually and mostly a forum lurker. The Giant Bomb guys have always been a huge inspiration for me particularly when it comes to my writing. So much so that I even took to writing about games for a small website for a little while as a volunteer. Writing about games was fun and I obviously love talking about them, but my true writing passion is actually slam poetry. It may seem unlikely that the GB crew could influence someone's poetry, but I even take inspiration from their music like Midnight Brown, Headboard, and The Suburban All-Stars and not just their work in games.
I've always thought the GB community to be really positive and supportive of each other when it comes to creative work which is why I feel confident posting this here. Just today I had a slam poetry piece published on Thought Catalog for the first time and I thought that while this is very off-topic, some of you guys might want to check it out.
The link is below and I would love some feedback if at all possible. Thanks for being a great community and keep being awesome.
