Rules for Poets

Home Authors Alphabetically Authors Date Submitted Authors Country Submission Rules Feedback

We are publishers not critics. If you wish to chat with someone about your poetry, join a chat group or news group dedicated to that purpose. We will NOT pass along any email that we get pertaining to your published poems and WE will NOT give you a critical evaluation of your work. We list the author's email address on his or her pages, so we will not forward email to authors. If the author's email address is listed as (our webmaster's email address), that means it is out of date and we do not know what, if any, is the new address.

If you wish to submit poetry for inclusion in these pages, there is a hyperlink at the bottom of this page which will take you to our form for submitting poetry. If your poem is accepted for inclusion, we will add the HTML (hypertext) markup and links. You just format it more or less the way you want it to look, but do NOT send word processor files. Make sure your poem is in text-only form. Also, do NOT send files in ALL CAPS. Remember that the way the finished product will look depends on the viewer one uses, but we will try to make it look as close to your original as possible. If you are writing in a language that requires a special font viewer, please include a reference to the necessary set of fonts. Absolutely no poetry will be published without the name (it doesn't have to be real), email address (which MUST be real) and the location (city, state and country only, no street addresses please). Here is a summary of our rules.

The WPC will charge a small sum of money for post-submission changes. This includes the editing of poems, the changes to email or user names, even the removal of one or all poems. The submission and posting of new poems will remain free of charge. A flat fee of $5 US for each post submission request will be charged. You can make this payment, if you so can leave what you have already submitted as it is...must be made to PayPal, an online "bank." Once PayPal has notified us of the deposit, your requested changes will be immediately made.

If you already have a PayPal account, you can simply login to that account and send us the funds using the "Send Money" tab. Use the email address,, to direct the funds to our account. If you do not yet have a PayPal account, you can open one by clicking on the icon on the left below.
