I was told of many winners of thousands of dollars from the conventions that this company held. I later found out the pictures of the many 'lucky winners' were in fact employees of this company.

I searched the database of the site for the winningpoets entries on the site, could not find a single one. They were employed by the company and hadn't even submitted a poem. The letter I was given acclaiming my poem boasted that only the best were excepted.

I soon found the transcript of a televised report on the organization. They had sent the same letter to a class of third graders, whose extent of poetic talent consisted of 'The cat in the hat ate a rat'.

I believe it is quite misleading to praise the calibur of a poet and how they are so selective when every entrant is accepted.

People need to relax

AUTHOR: Violet - (Canada)

I just want to say that some people need to relax. I sent in something to peotry. com and I got published. I also received a copy of the book, when everyone else I talked to said I would not. It is people like this that make young artist's skeptical.
