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.

Please save your poems on your computer first (always a good practice), before attempting to post them on PoetrySoup. The Soup has been experiencing some SPAM and denial of service attacks recently that are slowing down the website. We are working with our hosting company on blocking these knuckleheads. Your poems and personal information are safe, but you may experience performance problems with the website until we can resolve this. Thanks for your patience.

    A big thank you Team PoetrySoup for letting us know about these hackers, or as you call them, " knucleheads. " I have appreciated your concern. You have done an amazing job in publishing our poetry and protecting it from haters of the written word. Thanks a million and may God bless you for your effort. Have a wonderful day. Love, Andrew.

    Hello TeamSoup! Just to say, I got your message. My aol account has resurrected itself. What I penned in my note to you still holds: I was barred for a while - on two separate occasions - and then let in again. As you can see, I'm back with the same username and password. Thank you very much for your efforts in checking on my report. Every good wish. T. Wignesan

    While we have your attention, how about some added features in the judging section? I would love the ability to kick some entries out of my contest when they have nothing to do with the contest. I would like to be able to block that person from re-entering that contest as well, and if they're a continous problem, block them from all my contests (with the option to unblock if they clean up their act) what do you say?
