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 Technical Problems and Update

Blog Posted:6/18/2019 4:25:00 AM

Soon, PoetrySoup will be undergoing maintenance to replace some failed hard drives. We will replace them within 24-48 hours, and there will be 30 minutes downtime during the maintenance. Once they are replaced, we will contact everyone by email. We will then attempt to recover any lost poems or information from the past three days.

Hey TPS, while you're fixin' things, can you tweak an algorithm or two to make me appear aesthetically irresistible and lyrically desirable? Jus askin.

Being the Administrator of a Poetry Website, I can understand issues within the system. Patience is key in moments such as these. Sometimes waiting until all issues are resolved- before trying to re-post poems and comments, is best. ~ Brandy

Ahhh, so you want moments to be out of control. You want me to be wild, and not gentle!!!!

No, Maxwell Smart likes someone in Control (her name is 99). I like Kaos!

As far as I know only one of my poems has disappeared: "Music fills the air"; I had entered it for a contest. Hopefully I will see it reinstated! regards...paul

I am also dissapointed Brian, as I was delighted to receive a First placement in your Personification competition with my poem Bang, Crash, Crackles, so I do hope this can be rectified by TPS! Thanks for my placement Brian. With kindest thoughts Ann xx

Brian, Along with Dear Heart and some other poets, I also received first place - indeed my name headed the list - so I hope that all goes back to normal and that you won't judge the new Your Choice (10) Personification that has made an unfortunate appearance on the list of current contests.

Brian, I saw that and I was devastated, because I got first place in Personification 10 and I wrote you a great poem for Imagist 11 too, oh I do hope they can restore the contests and poems . . . I lost poems entered in my contests too, and I think some contests I entered, my poems are no longer there
