    I was a member of the old poetry.com and submitted several poems. None which I have found by searching my last name Brasley. Please help in trying to locate these for me. A lot of my original work on paper was lost in Katrina and I started writing them on here never thinking that they may ever disappear. Please help!

    Dear friends, many of you are wondering if it would be possible to bring their old poems back. Our team has made a tireless effort in the last few months to recover some of the old content from internet archive records, and indeed managed to save thousands of poem and poet records. You can use our search box to look for your old stuff, either by poet name or poem title, and also claim ownership for the findings by filling up a form. We do realize, that unfortunately, not all the material from the old days of Poetry.com will be available.

      I posted several poems on poetry.com. Now this is the only poetry.com I can find. But I cannot find any of my poems. Is there another site or are my poems gone forever?

      Yes, this is the only Poetry.com there is — having said that, there might still be a chance that you could find your work elsewhere on the web, or on printed books if it was ever published.

      There's an EDIT button at the bottom of your poem's text.

    So I wrote a poem and I want to add it to the account I made. However, I submitted the poem before making the account. Can I move it onto my account somehow?

    Like many of the people here I too am in search of lost poems from when I was younger, may have posted them under Maria Gomez or Mafi Gomez . Or simply Mafi, it would be great if poetry.com would allow us to search by name of author and not just by poem name! Thank you so much in advance !

    Hello. I submitted around 7-8 poems back in the early 2010s and was really hoping I could get access to them. I still have the notification emails and tried to follow the links to find the poems, however, it didn't work. Is there a way I could find copies of them? I used the same email back then as I've used to make this current account which leads me to believe that my entire account was deleted. I hope this is not the case and that there is some archive of sort that I may access to find my work. Looking forward to a response. Thank you in advance!

    I posted 2-3 poems near 2008-2010 time under the name Nicole Rehberg. I am specifically interested in the one I wrote about my mothers death. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the title, but I’m hoping my last name will help with your search. I have been trying to find it for years and am so glad you guys offer access to the old poetry.con archives. Thank you, Nicole

      Everyone has the same question and there is not even a token effort to answer it for any of them, which is crazy because it's a yes or a no, nothing more complicated than that. Since you are the only person I have seen reply to any question I was wondering if maybe you knew something that everyone doesn't?
