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.

Our First Poetry Anthology!

Blog Posted:9/11/2020 8:02:00 AM

Well, you requested it, and it's finally here. PoetrySoup is publishing its first poetry anthology. We are currently accepting submissions for this publication. See our Submission Guidelines.


We have received many, many requests over the years to produce an anthology. We've been reluctant to do so; however, we've come up with a way to simplify the process and create a poetry anthology.


We hope this will be the first of many.

Soup admin, regarding my comment below you will see that I asked a reasonable question, yet I am mocked by a person who has used a comment I made on Jennifer's POTD.. I have him blocked yet he is still allowed to comment . PLEASE will you close the loophole that allows this to happen. I am certain other people he does this to would also appreciate it.

Mosquitoes find a way to buzz around, trying to suck blood. One good slap....

The comments have now been removed Jenna, hopefully admin will close the loophole which enables them to comment to you when you are away from your poetry page, surely you would think they would get the message if you have them blocked you want no communication with them. i will not engage in responding to them:-(

TPS Administration: I would appreciate it if you'd give a warning to those who post negative and rude comments.

Are you still going to be contacting poets directly regarding poems that you wish to include as per your blog of 10/22/19 ?

Since we must sign the waiver(which is not a problem for me) I was wondering if the contributing members could perhaps get a copy at a discounted price? just askin Also, the best way to sell is advertising, why don't you figure out how to give us something to post on our FB pages to advertise for you. Like the poetrysoup adverisement you already furnish to members., afterall they are our poems so naturally we want folks to read them. poetry books can be a hard sell!
