I cannot submit a new poem!
You can submit up to 3 poems at once. After that you will have to wait until a poem has been processed to upload a new one.

Why has my poem been rejected?
Our editorial team tries to publish as many submitted poems as possible. Please understand that in some cases however poems will not be accepted for a publication on this site. In this case you will instantly receive a confirmation e-mail with a short explanation for the decision. Common reasons for poem rejections are: poem has been written in uppercase only; poem contains offending language or illegal content; the same poem has already been published or submitted before; poem is not written in English. If this happens, it doesn't mean that you are a bad writer. Continue and try to submit another poem.

I don't like a comment on my poem, what can I do?
Since this is an open platform where registered readers can share their opinion on poems, we will not remove poems that may contain a negative opinion. But our editorial team will remove comments in case they don't relate to the poem's content or include offending language or are not written in English. Please let us know if this happens.
