      If you are a contestant in that months contest, the reading and voting process begins on the 1st of the next month. If you entered your poem in the August contest; that means you may begin reading the other poems on the 1st of Sept. and have until the 7th to cast your vote. You'll be notified. It's an 'in-house' thing...possibly to avoid a lot of outside influence...it's judged by the other poets. I once belonged to a writing site that was more dependent on how many friends and family members they could rally to garner votes; than the actual quality of the person's work...so I like this platform. If you are NOT in the contest, you're still able to read all of the submitted poems after the voting process is completed :).

But I'm pretty sure you would have been sent an email if your poem made it in. If for some reason it didn't...try again next month. Good luck.

      Hi Dawn...from what I understand, you can't submit a poem that has already been published; and especially if it's been promoted and received attention. One way to get around that might be to change the title and rework the poem a little, but I'm not sure if that's good advice or allowed either :). Good luck with this. I actually DO love the title; as is.

      Thank you for your response. When you click on "Enter Here" under "Poetry Contest" and read from the "How does it work?" paragraph, you will find this sentence..... "
      Submit an original poem or choose one of your existing poems from the site."..... This suggests that you can submit a poem already on the site to the contest. Someone also sent me an email informing me that this site has not worked out all their kinks yet. That person then also suggested that I delete my poem. When I resubmit it, I will then be given an option to add it to the contest. I would rather not delete my poem. I hope this site finds a way for us to actually submit it to contest without me having to do that.

      You're absolutely right, Dawn, there should be a more convenient way... I'm happy to inform you that we've added a new button on members' profile pages called 'Nominate'. By simply clicking on this button, you can easily submit one of your existing poems to the contest.

      We hope this new feature enhances your experience and streamlines the submission process. Give it a try and let us know how it goes! Wishing you the best of luck with the contest!

      I'm pretty sure that everything submitted before STANDS4 acquired the site is gone. And the prior owners of the site didn't leave a trace of where they may have 'archived' anything. I also lost several 'editors choice awards' poems. STANDS4 is a new era, and their policy to preserve the submissions on file, indefinitely is very notable. Scroll down here and view the post from 'acronimous'. He is the current CEO of the site, and through my own experiences with him I find him to be very trustworthy and helpful.

    I've seen multiple question about locating lost poems. From what I've gathered; when STANDZ4 network took over, all of the poetry from bygone eras were no longer accessible to those poets who had submitted material before their acquiring the site. I also lost some poetry, but I know it has nothing to do with the current organization. I feel a little uncomfortable that the previous 'owners' didn't leave a bread-crumb-trail we could follow. I hope people take this to heart and email a dated copy of each poem to yourself, so that you don't lose your work, as well as having some sort of proof that it's yours. (I think it works that way?); before submitting it in the future. But I honestly do trust this new team; and believe they're honest.

      Sadly, I have to agree. For me, I lost everything. I mean, the total body of work, over some 5 years and more. In that bygone decade pre-takeover, it wasn't a "thing" that the site would just disappear overnight. And it did. A cross country move resulted in every single self-printed copy of my work was also lost to time. I spent several hours searching and found one result only because I had emailed it to a friend who requested it. That's all I have left. You give very solid advice. Poets, send yourself your own work. Don't trust a site, or a friend, or even your closest family members. This is a new age of data, and we few dinosaurs have been run out of town on the rails of technology and oversight. It's sad, but as an amateur author, I now know no one will protect and save my work except myself. Two tiny shining stars are the obit I published when my Father passed, and the other was a short story I wrote that actually made publication in an international journal. I have those. Thank you for sharing your information and supportive comments. I think it helps to know I am not alone. This is one quest I have had to surrender, but at least I remember I was once a fairly skilled poet and author. Life. Who knew?

      I can only tell you what I had to find out the hard way. Nothing remains from the former poetry.com site. Nothing. Not one piece of work, regardless if it was contest, published in one of the anthologies, openly submitted or reviewed. It's ALL GONE. If you did not save a copy to any other form of retrieval, you will never find it again. You could try friends or family, if you are the type of person who shares on those levels. Otherwise, give yourself a quiet "Atta-girl" and move forward. There is nothing to be found in any search engine post take-over from poetry.com or poets.com, not even poets workshop.com. It's all been wiped clean. Sorry. It hurts but it taught me the hard lesson to save my own work on drive, disc, email, docs, or even flash drive. If you value your work, save and send to yourself before ever submitting to an external site. These sites disappear overnight and once your work is gone, it will be as if you never wrote anything at all. So sorry.

    There’s something very off about this site. There’s a pattern in questions from poets that have submitted works they cannot see and a lack of response from this site. Why has no comment referencing all the lost / missing works been given in response to all the poets asking WHERES MY WORK.

    Example:

    Response:
    title: "A Dead Boche"
    poet: "Robert Graves"
    poem: "crop-haired, \nDribbling black blood from nose and beard."

    Could you please tell me what I am doing wrong? I suppose I should get the whole poem? Thanks

    @soulwriter can you help me find my poem. I wrote it. I don't remember the year but I think it was called fantasy dream and my name is Joshua mootry. There maybe some misspelling. It's been years like early 2000 or before. I recently looked it up. Like 7 yrs or so ago but recently it's not anywhere

    Sure was disappointed when they shut down with no warning.

    Can't remember my username from 2007. Much less the poem titles.
    Only had about a dozen, more or less.

    How can I find my lost poems?

    Are they cataloged by email, username?
    Only way to find them for sure if associated w/ email.

    I have been putting my poetry out here on poetry.com since the early 2000's. I cannot locate anything. Where did they go? I've written under Sheri Elaine, Sheri Jensen, Sheri E. Hanson. I know they have to be here somewhere. I have 5 published books of poetry in my living room. I am wanting to find my poems as my summer students are now interested in poetry. I'm needing more than just a little help.
