I would like to learn to become a great writer. I enjoy writing small stories and poems, but I am not very good at it.

It takes time to learn to write well. First of all, I notice you are 17...continue your education. At this point school/college can best direct your talent and help you develope the skills you need. Secondly, there are lots of great sites on the internet, that offer guidance and sometimes classes in certain area. Writing also takes a lot of practice, practice, practice. The more you write and develop your ideas the bettr you will get as a writer. If you want to try your hand at writing some some small articles, and getting paid for it, try this site. I belong to it, but don't publish much, as I am busy working on a novel. But they do pay if they accept your work and it doesn't cost anything to join. http://www.associatedcontent.com/join.html?refer=15512 Best of luck to you. If I can help more let me know.
