My Poetic Path

my journey…shared in poems, prose and photos

Poetry.com is history!

I was so pleased to read this:

Poetry.com

It’s hard to imagine how much damage and discouragement this organization was responsible for. How many fledgling poets gave up on their writing, after having their dreams stomped on by these unscrupulous hucksters. The comments on that link/page (scroll down a bit) are just a small sample of that destruction.

Hooray!!!! Poetry.com is “toasted”.  🙂

  1. Wow, I had no idea poetry.com was anything like that. Sad. Looks like Lulu will be better, I hope!

  2. I didn’t know! Thanks for the scoop.

  3. It’ about time this disgraceful sight is gone. I was one of their believers and was dupped. But I did give up and finally found a publisher to believe in me and publish my book. My book; Poetry in Motion or Speedbumps of Life, was released two weeks ago. I’m hoping people enjoy it and gives people some inspiration to never give up on your dreams.

    You can find my book at:

  4. Sounds like it’s a good thing its gone. Good riddance, I say!

  5. I second the motion (re: Sel’s comment). Good riddance!!!!

  6. wow.. why would people be so mean about poetry?????? The world has gone crazy…

    and for you.. a special ::hug:: to deal with what you need to. I’ve searched all over for your email so i can invite you over to the new place 🙂 but can’t find it, can you send again?
