Allen, yeah that is wonderful. Thanks. Not sure what it has to do with the thread haha. Oh, the 'Stuffed Owl' bad poetry book? Is that also the name of this song?? Confused and tired. Goodnight all.

Glad the Sphere's back.

Julie, as I said above, "The only difference here is that one can see his or her work published without having to pay for the book."

I do keep checking Poetizer to see when ads will start appearing there, just like Facebook. I can't imagine that someone has set up the site out of the goodness of their hearts. As I also said, it seems like a "safe space" where the poets can remain anonymous and not have to worry about criticism or getting their feelings hurt. I don't even think it's possible for one poet to contact another.

Some years after 1989, when the World of Poetry (or its successor) did start giving real prizes, one of my students won $5000 for her poem.

Sorry for missing the point, Sam. I do that. Frequently. Thanks for the gracious correction, after I had been so ungracious to you.
