The crushing Blow...came after opening the envelope and reviewing the contents. Instead of wanting to reward me for my poetry submission, they had the audacity to solicit money from me to purchase "The International Who's Who In Poetry" with my Poem and Boigraphical Info...of which I needed to send along with a check.
Howard Ely, Managing Editor had signed the Ediotr's Choice Award for Outstanding ACHIEVEMENT in Poetry. Not only do aspiring poets get recognition for thier efforts...they now have to pay for this recognition.
Searching their archives of other poets, I found 3 other family members with works on Poetry.com's site. Being younger...and I am sure more Internet Savvy...I am too embarrassed to verbalize my initial excitement, only to discover the sham that poetry sites are proliferating with their enticements to enter contests.
P.S. In early June I received an invitation to attend a Symposiun in Washington D.C. (Aug. 19, 2005) at the Special Offer of only $595.00. This was for the convention only.
Iffffff.....I was selected...I could win Cash or prizes...
What a JOKE...I am now a little more attuned to the reality of these scams.
