Black Diamond has several active poets. Poetry is encouraged in all members, regardless of experience, and any poetry is welcome, especially in period styles.
A former Poeta Atlantia, Maistresse Maaline Renard writes poetry in a variety of period styles including the lengthy Chaucer-inspired Black Diamond Tales written completely in Middle English and more recently has begun writing works of poetry in Old French and Chinese. Maistresse Maaline does her best to ensure that none forget that period works of poetry were far more entertaining to read and write than high school English classes would have us all believe.
A former Poeta Atlantia, Master Thomas Broadpaunch enjoys writing poetry both serious and irreverent and is always open to discussing poetry both old and new.
