PoetrySoup is an internet poetry resource and community that encourages the writing of poetry through community involvement and support. Founded in February of 2005, this Free online poetry website allows professional and amateur poets, from around the world, to post their poetry online and receive reviews. This allows poets to increase exposure from their work while perfecting their craft. For those who simply like to read poetry, PoetrySoup also publishes poems in many categories and forms for wholesome reading pleasure.

PoetrySoup also sponsors free poetry contests with cash awards once every four months. The PoetrySoup International Poetry Contest is free poetry contest open to all forms and genres of poetry. This contest now awards $1000 in prizes yearly and is open to all poets either with or without previously published poetry. Only electronic submissions through the PoetrySoup website are accepted.

    Don't worry about it Ruben, the soup removed my comment... Admin is right, I should not comment about other things that are bothering me about the soup. However, this blog is a nice gesture to other problems.

    Thanks for the comment. but, my comment is over another matter, it has nothing to do with the blog. I am addressing this to the soup, because something is going on with my account. I know how the community point work around here. In the past few months I noticed the computer is only generating 10 - 30 community for every 15-30 comments I leave behind.

    Appreciate all the efforts, PS Team. Thanks for helping make this a valuable & worthy site for us all who care about each others work. I was getting concerned for awhile there. :)
