to some of the mails by sending them a proofread and corrected copies of my poems through the
Address: 1 Poetry Plaza, Owings Mills, MD, 21117-6282. I authorised some of the publications of
my poems also at their website www.poetry.com.
These are the details of some of the letters I got from them, telling me that I qualify to attend the
International Library of Poetry Symposium to be held in Washington DC.
1. Poem tittle "It shall be over soon",
VIP number given me by poetry.com through a snail mail letter, P4163797

2. Poem tittle: If and only If.
VIP number, P6898578

I have about five of such letters with me now that tells me that I am qualified to attend the
meetings, I was asked to keep the dates and they will soon send me an official invitation to the
symposiums, which I have not got till this year, 2011. I also have several letters from them with
me now, asking for my authority to let them publish my poems and also record some on CDs and
Tapes for people to listen to.
Initially, I could log on to their website, www.poetry.com and search for and read all the poems
I sent them, now the website is missing and the poems.
I began writing to them in 2000, with my first poem tittled " God will make a way", I used my
Ghanaian address, through which they sent me these letters, but later, Ghana disappeared from
the list of countries mysteriously, but I still to write to them from Ghana but in the country column, a few times, I used United kingdom and South Africa which demanded that the letters from poetry.com to me
have to undergo forwarding service which is shown on the envelops I have now.
I want someone to assist me get the whole truth about this so called International Open poetry contest, which stole my poems, made me waste money to post letters, fulled me with the so called
invitations to the symposium etc.
