how do you know which contest are real and which are fake?
it's one to pounder over when many are already selected
I've found that many use it to win you over and publish your
work ......sure they give you your copy rights but they make
all the royalities for the use of thousands of artist work .......
it's hard to say who on the ups it have a lot of pros and cons
it's who you feel is real and what they offering how winners are
selected or picked and what winners recieve, every thing has a price
just beware ......i've been down this street before
good look rich thanks for the advice
j/w cuz i enter some free contest and they sent me some stuff saying i made semifinals
i'm jus wonder how do i figure out wat to do..
that semifinals will ask for money to buy a book many times it all come
down to the poet spending money for products ....likes a copy of the book
your poetry will be displayed in and or a voice copy of your poem which someone
else will be reading even the thing about your name in lights with a time offer
price and many times you will see it come out and say 49.95 to you but it's cost
what i learn is we make these contest people $$$$ with our work from thousands
of poets good one's new one's and young one's even not so good one's everyone
a winner to publish there work in a hardbound book and they get all the Money for
it all you get is a promise to be one of there finalist but on the end never win that
final i have take this trip before and learned the pros and cons of contests
thank you wise one
welcome sista .................
$$RICH$$ is right. I have bought two books each contain one poem by me.
For $ 49.00 each. They send me a chamnce to go to a semifinal program I'm a runner up in. But I have never gone.
I do trust them ( www.poetry.com ) they have about 30 poems of mine on there. No cost for your poems to go in their books if they offer it to you. I get an offer about every three months ... to submit another in one of their Anthology's.
yes i too have many many poems their and i too get offers
truely when they say you are finalist so is hundreds of others
cross the world to spend more money and the picked choice
will win ...this they have done and it be one from them who win
these contest are poeticly false winners are picked before it start
these people work for them i had a chance to feel the affects of the
inside track how it work ......
Scan Scam Scam
I would never buy a book
That I am a finalist for
If im a finalist give me the dam book
I dont think I have ever seen
One of there books in any store
Shame On You Poetry.Com Shame
Fake, you should never pay to have your book published or poem unless it's self published.
