One of my poems is going to be published in The International Library of Poetry coming out this spring!! I'm a semifinalist in their contest, which I entered for English. The poem is saying why blank verse is better than any stylized poetry, but the ironic thing is -- it's written in iambic pentameter! tongue.gif laugh.gif biggrin.gif laugh.gif rolleyes.gif smile.gif tongue.gif

It's called: A Tribute to Blank Verse

DRAGON BLESSING

May dragons bring you wealth
and guard your treasures
May they banish darkness and enlighten you
May female dragons grant you inner power
May the Dragon Queen
neutralize your enemies
May Dragon Spirits
give you power over Elementals
May weather dragons
bring rain at your request
May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power

Congratulations! What an honor to have your poem published - that is sooo cool. Will you have a link to the book so maybe we can purchase a copy?

Yeah, so I really don't show up here anymore but I felt compelled to pop on by. No clue why. But I get here and see this and feel I need to share my two cents on this subject since I have experience with these people.


I was first "accepted" back in 98. I thought it was great that a poem of mine was accepted. To top that off they were giving me the chance to buy a copy of the book at a discount. WOW! Well, I couldn't fork over the money at that point in time so I declined.

I continued to get acceptance letters for the books and for the spoken word cds.
I had a friend of mine get accepted into one of the same ones I was accepted into so he spent the 70 bucks or whatever the cost was and we sat down to read our published work. Interestingly, his work was in there but mine wasn't. Hmmmm

So I ordered a spoken word CD that I was part of. Yeah, that was a rip off.

Then, in 2000, I was invited to attend a convention (and I've been invited to one every year since). I was even going to be awarded with the coveted PROMETHUS MUSE OF FIRE AWARD for the best poet of the new millennium. All I had to do was become a member of the "society" for a few hundred bucks plus 600 bucks for hotel and then the plane ticket.
Well, I couldn't afford any of that so I wrote them and asked them to just send my award. I got a letter back saying they'd send it to me if I'd pay the shipping (umm...ok) and the price of the award. Soooo I had to pay 200 bucks if I wanted an "AWARD" that I supposedly won? Riiight!


The letters all start similarly (Mind you Iím trying to remember off the top of my head). Something like:" Imagine, a hush falls over the crowd as they announce *insert name and poem title here* as the winner and finest poet blah blah blah.

I've probably broken your heart and I'm sorry if I did but I'd rather you be as informed as possible about this before you get your hopes up.

Um, not really. It's not like I'm actually a serious poet or anything. I entered for English class. If it's serious that's great, if it isn't, I still don't plan to spend any money on the book, besides, I work in a book store and can easily view it when it comes out. So don't worry 'bout me, if it's serious, sweet, if it isn't, whatever.
