hi guys^^ i love to write poems. thats a big passion that i have since a long time^^ i was thinking that i wouldnt mind to work as a story teller or as a poems writer^^ i love to write mostly about love and i would like to ask you if you know about any site where i can write and get paid well^^ i know about triond and bukisa but i mean a blog where a lot of people can read the poems and i can earn money with it. or a place where i can write and receive money for it^^ if you know about something please share^^ also i would like that you read my poem^^ and tell me what you think about it: Love is you.. love is to hold you against my arms.. love is to kiss you when you cry.. love is saying i love you everyday.. to love you is more than i can ever say.. i adore you can seem too cheesy.. but the truth is that.. to deny it would be a big mistake.. that could cost me to lose you.. i want you around me all the time.. without you i cant be neither one day.. to marry you was my sweetest dream.. it cant end..

Poetry, unfortunately, doesn't pay. Or doesn't pay well, anyway. Helium had to create a special Creative Writing section because poetry earns so badly and they didn't want people to stop writing it. Although it's a very popular area, there's no money in it, basically, except for people like Hallmark cards, I would imagine. Blue Mountain Arts buys poems for greeting cards (http://www.sps.com/help/writers_guidelines.html) Writer's Digest (http://www.writersdigest.com) has useful links and info for most genres, so you could probably find a market there. Other than that, you're pretty much limited to magazines, greetings cards, self-publishing and that kind of thing.

Note: I don't know if Helium and AC pay for poetry. I know they didn't for a while but maybe they do now. You could also publish on rev share sites like HubPages and Squidoo, assuming they allow poems. Or just put it on your own blog, of course.

Nice poem, I love it! I wish I could help you find a site where you can post and get paid for writing, but I really don't have any idea where and what site is legit and a good one! Good luck on writing and on your site hunting. :)

hey that was pretty good. I wish I had talent like that, but poetry is not something I have ever been good at writing.

Language as one means of communication arts, either directly or indirectly, so very dynamic, with "language" we can seek emotional closeness of each individual's personality, which can be said to have characteristics in a language that is quite diverse, with languages??, each individuals can interact with each other in capturing the excitement emotions / sense of the intangible to be conveyed to him by another individual. With language and symbols or language, we can convey thoughts / opinions with the hope of creating new images that can influence the pattern of these languages ??think the message recipient.

I love to write poem as well. I published of my poems in Triond, though it not pay much but its a lifetime earnings as long as it is around. I am trying to find some place to publish my poems as well that pays good. I sold one poem on fiverr of $5, my client or the buyer was a charity owner and my poem is used a song lyrics for their particular program.I would love to hear from others as well if where they publish their work and get paid.

If you have what they are looking for (and they are very choosey) a GREAT place to make money with poetry is Blue Mountain Arts. It's a greeting card company. It's been a while since I've looked but I believe they paid something like $350 to use your poem in a card and another $100 or something if they included it in their poetry book they put out once a year. Part of the reason they pay so well is they are very selective so don't get your hopes up too high. But greeting card companies are always looking for new verses so you might do some research there.
