Get Paid For Your Poetry

I’m a bit disappointed. No one has entered my ekphrastic poem contest. Really, there’s not a lot of commitment. Just write a poem and publish it on your blog. Then link it back to me. Details here.

A former operations manager of Oxford American magazine is in jail – for embezzling.

Thanks to Poet Hound, I now know I can make $200 for one poem.

Read this interview with Hiram Larew, a poet who comes very well recommended in my part of the world.

Former Hanover, Pa. Poet Laureate Dana Larkin Sauers is the latest poet to be reviewed at World Class Poetry, for her book Between the Space of Grace and Gray.

    Well, you’ll have a tough time entering the ekphrastic poem contest, but I see no reason why you can’t submit your poetry to the review. I’m assuming that is what you are referring to?

    Dear Sir,

    I came across your site while surfing through the net. Though the contest is over, this interested me as we conduct similar poetry contest here (friendly and no money involved though) for fun. I am enclosing the link of one of my poem based on a picture of a Ballet dancer.

    My questions are -

    1. Is yours a one-off contest or is it a series that runs continuously?
    2. Is there any contest of yours open?
    3. Is my poetry good enough to be read by others?

    I’d like to get money for my poems, do you know of any sites that I can go to and get paid to write poems? I live in Perry Florida, and I dont have the money to pay bills, buy food, and all the other important things that take money, AND I am six months pregnant and when I have this baby I won’t even have the money to provide for my child. So if there is some way that you can help me out I would really appreciate ANYTHING you can do.
    Thank you very much.
    Katie Slobodian, of Perry Florida.
