If its one thing I love to do is write poetry and also I like to read it. Looking into peoples thoughts through poetry is awsome! I also like to submit poetry to contests! If anyone is interested in reading my poetry or letting me read theirs, reply to this discussion. Thanks

If you publish your work online anywhere, on myLot or anywhere else, they will not be eligible for contests or publication in magazines, etc. "Previously unpublished" work includes the internet. Once online it is considered published and can not be used when restricted to those guidelines. So be wary what you post. You can post work that has already won contests or been published or you can private message people with your poems. As for people stealing your work, once you have posted it online it is dated and copyrighted. People can copy it and you won't know about it though. It's only the ones you catch that you will need the proof for. I have posted a couple of poems online and soon regretted it because they were my best poems and I could not use them for contests.
