    Yes Poetry.Com is a scam
    I wish I would buy a ticket to florida to get an award that I won
    If I won why not fly me out there
    Or not go and pay for my award
    Scam of a lifetime

    Well, I entered one of my stories into a competition one time but it was Writer's Digest, so I think it was legit.

    Still, if authors want their work published they certainly can't go wrong with the self-publishing route. Competitions can't accurately weigh who truly has talent and who doesn't anyway.
