After researching the poetry.com website, and what seemed "too good to be
true," we found that it is.  There are quite a few articles on the
poetry.com scam (including a Barbara Walters special on 20/20), but a good
collection of links to many of them can be found at:
http://www.windpub.org/literary.scams/ilp.htm.  If you have already
submitted poetry to this site, you may request that it be removed.

For information on submitting your work to reputable publications, try

Good Luck!

While I know that not all bards are poets, I also know not all poets are
bards. I recently found this site & I thought I would pass it along. In
economic climate I know the chance of even a little extra can be helpful.
would be very cool if a "period style" poem won. Good luck to any poets
