There’s another poetry contest called Poetry Nation where you could win cash prizes- like thousands of dollars. Of course I wouldn’t be writing about it if I hadn’t entered it. I don’t know why but to me the site looked kinda shady and I couldn’t get past the Google ads. However I managed to get to the place where you could enter your poetry. A few weeks later I got an acceptance letter in the mail. I was happy but in order to buy a book, you must pay close to $60. I’m kinda on a budget cut here so I didn’t buy the book. My friends told me that I should’ve bought a book cuz writing poetry could be a future job for me. But my parents pointed out that I would just be paying to be published, so I don’t have much regret now when I look back. Try entering this contest for yourself and see where it brings you.
