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.

NEW Feature!!! My Wall Tab
Blog Posted:10/30/2012 8:15:00 AM


We are testing a new feature. It's called the My Wall tab. This tab displays on your poetry list page. This is the page that displays whenever someone clicks on your name.

Users can add Facebook comments via this tab. This gives your poetry greater exposure through social marketing!!! For instance, if you post a new poem, and select the "Post to Facebook" checkbox, your Facebook friends will be notified of the comment. Similarly, people who comment on your page will give you greater exposure.

    Sorry don't see this on my page, I do not have the "my poems' and "my wall" set up. It probably doesn't matter as I don' t use facebook. Lee
