Poetry.com - International Library Of Poetry ripoff poetry scam Owings Mills Maryland
The $75 I paid for the book and its contents was absolutely ill prepared and my joy drained from my soul as I relized I should have went with my first instinct, and that my words were not as special as they made me feel, just so they can makeover $12,000 on all the artist who were on those 223 pages, In addition since I was unable to attend the convention they were so nice to offer me to ship my extremely heavy award and medallion and offered to display my poetry for only $169 but since I can't pay for it I just can't have the awards, moreover I was no longer eligble to be a semi finalist since I had to read in front of the judges at the convention in Las vegas.
I thought when I started this whole process there was no purchase necessary to be in the contest, but because I could not afford the cost of $500 for the convention and the cost of airfair and hotel, my poem is not elgible for the contest. Instead of pure elation for being published I feel total disgrace and will never show my work in this book to anyone, Where was the editor before the book went to print? Out spending the profiit of others visions. I feel as though I was a fool to succumb to this scam and literally raped of my dignity, One Last thing for all you amateur photographers use caution they are also linked to another buissiness that I caught on to quick by the same format letters and mail merge in the same owings mills md.
