I have given this a lot of thought. I’ve been on Medium for 6 months now, gained 1K followership, and am in the top 8% of earners, and in celebration I thought I’d share with you what I believe to be my top 10 stories and poems.
At the time of this post I have been curated 62 times across 18 different tags and am a Top Writer for Poetry, Climate Change, This Happened to Me, Advice, and Parenting.
I am the creator and sole contributor of Fiddleheads & Floss Poetry pub, and I am the creator and admin of a Facebook group for dedicated poets called Poets on Medium (POM).
Not all of these are selected based on their performance, but on the feeling that this is some of my best work on Medium. If you take the time to read these you will get a good understanding of who I am as a writer. I invite you to read these and perhaps develop your own Top Ten post.
In no particular order, my Top Ten (all friend links so that non-members can read them as well):
#10 Poetry is Not Your Therapist (curated in Mental Health and Writing)
#9 Clarity (This piece won the 2004 Prose award at Catawba College) (not curated)
