Just another scam!
Hi Maxi...can't believe you really fell for this one...it's just Poetry.com in another guise...same ole flim flam i.e., "We are really impressed with your work etc., etc.," Haven't you been reading all the warnings about these companies? There are myriad sites for you to learn about these come ons!!
They would (and have) accepted poems from babies, dogs... you send it in...you'll get their standard reply! And by the way...there is not legal obligation to buy anything...they hasten to add (to cover themselves) but how would you like to receive a silver cup with YOUR NAME engraved for all your friends and relatives to see...for the noninal fee of $$$$$ this too can be yours!!!!!
Poetry.Com was the subject of congressional inquiry a few years back as well as an investigavtive report on 60 minutes. The only thing you'll have to show for this is an inflated ego,and an empty wallet!
Don't fall for it! By the way...the only place you will see your work is by buying directly from them...no reputable book stores carry them. Don't enable them to laugh all the way to the bank! And the sad part is...it's all legal!
