Hey Premium Members,

You can now select which poems you want featured on the PoetrySoup home page!!! You can select this option when you post or edit a poem.

If you select more than one poem to be featured, we will randomly select a poem from your featured selections - when it is your turn to be featured.

Thanks to Debbie Guzzi for the idea!

What about the one's whom can't afford to become premium members ? Do or shall they also be granted an opportunity and or option to choose which poem they can have featured if ever ? If so then I would wish to have, "Be Still....", as my selection. Sincerely, with warm regards, John

A big thank you Team Soup!!! And rock !! Often I've cringed to see an old poem of mine featured, that I wasn't necessarily proud of, but had forgotten about. Some of those early attempts at poetry .......what was I thinkin' ??!!! lol !! That was long before I learned quality....not quantity .... Thanks team!!

in other words I was robbed. lol..... all my old featured poems chosen from your system were so bad. I deleted one of my bad poems, just cuz it was featured.... sometimes I'm to lazy to perfect or correct errors.

I only missed the featured poems once this year- due to family sorrow. I haven't missed many featured poems. I feel as if this is an option that should had been enhanced long ago through the years, I did not approve the poems chosen from my poem list. lol, my old poems are lame.
