Complaint Review: Howard Ely - International Library Of Poetry
Howard Ely - International Library Of Poetry1 Poetry Plaza Owings Mills, Maryland U.S.A.
Howard Ely - International Library Of Poetry They sent me a letter stating I had one as a semi-finalist in a poetry competitionMy poem would be published for free in a book. Owings Mills Maryland
I was elated with this and saved the paper work & ordered a plaque with my poem on it. For the low price of $39.00 & $9.00 shipping I would get my poem back on the plaque. Also my poem would be entered into a book to be published that spring. The book was $49.00 & $9.00 shipping.
I then heard NO more from this society. I recieved NO book or any prize for my being a semi-fialist. I did recieve the plaque, which by the way was not worth $50.00 at all. This was a big rip-off. Making people believe they have talent & won contests & actually all they want is your hard earned money.
Recently I submitted another poem and was sent the exact same thing. I am a semi-finalist again for my poem "Waves of Love" which by the way will be in the book entitled "Immortal Verses" due to be published this spring. I can not believe this happens over & over again. The first time it was shame on me!!! This time, I will not send any money, and I can bet you I will not recieve my prize for being a semi-finalist or anything else. Please put a stop to this farce!!
