 I was reading a report on Noble House of New York,and I had to shake my head, for I was not alone,I also wrote poetry which was to be published by Noble House of New York, they sent me via e-mails,my poem laid out to be proof read, I was also informed regarding a contest in Las Vegas, in which we were all to attend and read our poems,attend a dinner,cash prizes, meet famous poets, entertainers. They went as far as to tell me that I was awarded an honor of being an ambassador of poetry for that year. I unlike the other person, did not pay them a dime that they wanted,for the purchase of the book and the awards that they claimed I won.

At the time I was dealing with an Illness and the loss of my mother... The poem I wrote (Stepping Stone) was in honor of my mother, and dedicated to her memory and I thought how wonderfull, something in print that would forever be there for my family to enjoy. That the world would know just how much she was loved and missed. I went to Barnes and Noble to look for the book titled Winter Solace to purchase and to my surprise ,No such book. I should have known better, but in my case I did not lose any money.and I know these people need to be stopped, Im sure there are plenty of other people recieving these e-mails from poetry.com/Noble Of New York and paying out what could end up being hundreds of dollars.

How that worked...

AUTHOR: Edgeman - (U.S.A.)

Poetry.com used to be run by the International Library of Poetry and other similar names. Users could submit their poems and would soon be informed that their poem was well regarded and it will be published in an upcoming collection book. You can't go to a bookstore or Amazon to buy this book because it was only printed and sold by the organization.

Unfortunately, virtually everybody received this offer even if the submitted poem was poor (I am not saying that the OP's poem was poor; I obviously haven't read it.) The book does exist and people could even order something like a trophy but it must be stressed that everybody who submitted their work to the site could be "published" and order a trophy.

It wasn't really a scam because the company did send the product they offered. It's just that the book and award were virtually worthless. There was a photography variation that worked the same way. Any photographer who claimed to have received an award from the International Library of Photography would have been laughed out of the room.

Last year the poetry.com domain was snatched up by Lulu.com. That's a self publishing company and while they are legitimate, self publishing still doesn't have the prestige of actually being picked up by one of the big publishing houses.
