Free poetry CD download!

The Academy of American Poets is getting into its bag of poetic tricks again (always in a good way). After offering up a poem-a-day by well known poets through April, they’re now allowing poets to download an 11-track CD, recorded last month during their National Poetry Month reading series–completely free.

To download it, visit: www.poets.org/freecd

    Poetry.com is a scam basically. They will accept ANYTHING. Yes, it will get published in their book, but it is a giant volume with poems put in willy nilly, and you have to pay to get a copy. There was something like this many eons ago, before internet, run by the same people. I sent in a poem when I was in high school. A member of my writing group has had dealings with the current incarnation. AVOID THEM!!!

    You can get more info at http://www.absolutewrite.com/specialty_writing/poetry_scams.htm and you can go to Winning Writers (http://www.winningwriters.com/contests/wergle/we_background.php) and check out one that was entered in Poetry.com’s contest and was accepted. It’s total nonsense, not a single real word in it, and yet they took it. (Winning Writers has taken that and created a contest around it.
