I never blieved my poetry was that good. But i guess the people at poetry.com thought different. I entered a poem I wrote into a contest at poetry.com and I am a semifinalist for the $10,000 grand prize! Please hope I win. I need the money to help my family.

All I can say is be careful about this site. Don't shell out any money on it. There are other writing sites that you can join. I'd love to share with you a great site where you can be critiqued for your work, join forums and contests. You can also possibly earn through referrals. Let me PM you the site, just let me know.

Hello Starrywonder, I aslo had deal with poetry.com before, and I had many notices saying that I am a semi-finalist. I had to agree with the last commentor, everyone who entered received the notice. I had read and heard on the new about their scam. The next step they will have you do is booking airline ticket and hotel for the convention. I don't want to burst your bubbles, but be very careful about doing it. You already don't have money, and you don't want to chase after that with a debt. Take care!
