Nice quiz :-) Feedback: Some clues could be slightly more specific, D could potentially be a few people. And suggestion for Q, Christine Callaghan Quinn.
Feb 8, 2016
Thanks for the feedback. I actually like Emily Dickinson for D, but if you think there are better answers, I'm up for suggestions. Also. I have added Christine Quinn for Q.
Feb 9, 2016
Great stuff. No Emily Dickinson's a great one, what I meant is the clue is a little vague so it could be one a few different poets that begin with D, but then again she's undoubtedly the most famous so it probably doesn't matter. Just ignore me.
