I've been published too, by poetry.com people. It's vanity publishing, so I don't get money, but at least I am published...

Hey, congratulations! That's really cool, and it'll look good for you if you decide to approach a publisher to do a solo project.

Hey guys, it's nice to see you got published. Unfortunately poetry.com is a big scam. They publish everyone that posts a poem. I posted a poem about how much poetry.com sucked and they sent me a letter saying that I was about to be published. They get your money by making you pay for the poetry anthologies. If they were a legitimate publishing company they wouldn't make their authors pay for having the privelege of being published. Don't be sucked into this scam.

As a fellow writer, I'm sorry you got scammed. Hell, I've written a novel and no one's interested in it, writing is a lonely and poor profession I'm afraid.

Congratulations! I got some of mien published with poetry.com, even though they publish everyone's. It's a confidence booster though. Try making a poetry book and sending into an establsihed publishing company. You'll got further there.
