This company contacted me when I was 15 and asked me to submit into their contest. Of course, I was dumb and did. We were all excited... Needless to say, I stopped writing and submitting anything for a few years. I still don't enter anything now.

This company goes by several names. National Library of Poetry, Poetry.Com, Famous Poets, Famous Poets of Hollywood and more.

This company has a big page at my link to writing scams on the Main Board.

This company makes multi-millions every year on the poor poet whose only dream is to get recognition.

LOL, maybe I'll join you and many others and write a poem about them too and submit it. Then again, maybe not. Once they have your address, they never stop sending you mail inviting you to come to a conference and pick up you "International Poet of the Year Award"
