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.

I really love the inline blog comment editing, that was seriously needed... I also like the new addition to our poetry page, (for those who like to post short stories) It works for all of US who enjoy reading "Short Stories." Luv LINDA

Well done TPS, but just a couple additional suggestions that have been annoying for quite some time. #1 The jumping blog comments and #2 The ability for a contest host to delete an entry that the host deems to be not to the rules of the contest (happens all the time)--thanks

Jumping blog comments should be resolved. Has that happened within the past few days? As far as ability for sponsor to remove a poem from a contest, we decided against that a while ago...but we do have some contest management features coming that should help the problem.
