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.


Only letters and numbers...no special characters


Blog Posted:11/19/2012 6:24:00 PM
We had to make some changes to what is allowed when entering your first and last name on PoetrySoup. Because of upcoming enhancements, we can only allow letters, numbers, and a couple special characters (dashes, spaces, and periods) in the last name and first name fields. Thanks for your cooperation.

    The changes we are making are global changes that will help PoetrySoup. Certain characters and formats of names are causing technical issues, so we have to fix ALL names. It’s nothing personal. All Soupers are affected.

    Im not sure but I think you used a tilde (~) before your name, right? Maybe, it was replaced by the repetition of one of the names.

    No, I was not trying to be funny. You said that there are an extra Destroyer in your Poet Destroyer. Maybe, after the enhancements-changes, the system (a glitch) repeat your "last" name.
