Is there any site to publish poems?

Publishing and printing any book or poems in hard copies requires a lot of money and not everyone can afford to pay such even if they have something so good written.  I'm well aware that some people have taken to online sphere to publish their books and have copyright but I'm not sure which particular online website where one can successfully publish his or her poems. I'm looking forward to having your recommendations.

Yes there are many sites out there that you can publish your own poem like Wattpad. Making your own blog is also a good one but it take times to get more traffic on it so I recommend Wattpad. Wattpad is a composition network which has a huge number of readers. That way you can have your innovative work accessible for more extensive crowd inside limited capacity to focus time. You should simply make a record and begin posting. Besides, it gives highlights like vote, remark, pursue.

Well, I have published poems as a book, on my blog as well as on a couple of third party writing site. However, I have never used wattpad. Can you please elaborate more on wattpad. For instance, can we monetize our works or is this just a free publishing site where you are not compensated.

I don't really know if there are sites that publishes poem. My daughter was having school assignment about making a poem about love for language. When I searched from google there are poems that appeared but only a few.

I think this shows that there is a gap in the market. If you went searching and got a disappointment then the individual who creates such a platform may reap a lot from people who have experienced the same disappointment.

Well, there are already a lot of sites where you can publish poems and even earn by publishing poems. I am not talking about poetry magazines where your poem poems need approval for publishing. I am am talking about user generated content sites where you can publish poems and even monetize your poems. You can try Hubpages. I have published a lot of poems on hubpages. By the way you can also make a video of reading poem and publish on youtube.

I have heard of hubpages and tried it for an article. I remember there were several comments and contributions and as such I would advice that it is a credible site. Great one about reading out your own poems aloud and making a video of it.

Hubpages is an amazing community. You can not only hone your writing skills and receive feedback but also earn from your writing. I have published a lot of stories and poems on hubpages. I have also created poetry video, but I never published them on youtube. I published my poetry videos on hubpages. The experience was great

Wow, great of you. It is funny how a majority of the people here have been to the common writing sites and have actually had an experience that they can share. It shows the depth of experience as well as dedication to the hustle that we all have.

It is common for people to flit between the sites, whether it is a freelancing site or earning site. On SEOLads, I can identify many people from other site. A person who is basically earning by writing has probably heard of hubpages of not published on the site. The person who posts on paid to post forums is already on Postloop. When you are into online earning, you will be a part of the site that are popular.

I agree my friend. If you are a keen hustler in the online freelancing world then you will get to interact and identify people on numerous other sites that you have a common interest in.

Wattpad has lot of plagiarists. And it can be seriously bad to publish the stories and the poems there. I have had some stories lost there. And those people just copy and post on books and other places. They take the credit. So it can be seriously bad in that case.

That's scary. It's really disheartening to find out about that. I didn't know they weren't careful with copyright protection. I guess that's one factor to consider. So many people are desperate to make money from stealing your writing.

I found out that on some of the publishing sites like say wordpress and typepad. And that place once people told me that it's always better to post the content in the book. That way you can see that by publishing under book we can avoid the plagiarism and other issues. Thats what I have noticed.

I'm thankful for your advice on Wattpad. I guess it comes to down to basics. If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. I hope others think well before deciding to publish their stories there. It would be a great shame to have written something good only to have it stolen.

I think if you have some content that you don't mind getting copied. Then I think it's better to use mirakee and instagram. That way you don't end up making the wrong type of the content. I think poetry publishing may be a good option in that case on instagram.

Well, I have not tried wattpad. However, I can tell you plagiarism is every where. Your works can be stolen from any sites, or even when you publish on magazines and newspapers. My print and online works have been stolen many times. IN the beginning I used to file DMCA, contact the thief to remove stolen content, write to the site where it is published. However, these days I no longer care.

It's really sad to know that. It feels like the world is full of people who use others to get what they want. We're all guilty of needing others to some extent.

But stealing intellectual property is a different story.

In a way, people who've experienced a lot of this tend to ignore it just like you. You won't get anywhere other than stressing yourself out in trying to get justice. So it's better to move on and be more cautious in the future.

I have a pretty depressing case. Once I discovered my work on a site posted on another person's name. I joined the site and asked the author to remove the content. There wa no reply. I reported to the site admin, there was no answer. The site where my stolen work was published (the article is still there) is operated by a trusted Media company in India.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Steve5

Oh no! I'm so sorry about that. It really speaks volumes about how other people treat writing. They only see it as a means to an end.

I hope you never experience anything like that ever again. Writers deserve to have their content respected and valued. This is why many here suggest to publish your articles where someone can help you prevent it from being stolen.

I still have over a dozen articles stolen and published on other sites with other names. In the beginning, I worried very much. However, these days I do not care much. Search engines like Google penalizes the site that publish stolen content. By stealing contents and publishing om their own name, these people are harming their own site. No just articles, even my images have been stolen. I used to publish my own images along with articles, however, I have stopped doing that owing to image theft.

I was actually thinking of publishing my poems there. Glad that I read this and was warned. Plagiarism is very rampant nowadays that people with no conscience disregard the risk of copying someone else's work. It's sickening and alarming at the same time.

Thanks for the information. I haven't known that there are sites out there that you can publish your own poem in wattpad. Wattpad is a composition network with large audience or readers.

Thanks for recommending the site Wattpad, I'm definitely going to try it out but what I'm worried about is that if it's secure to publish my poems on the site and avoid it being copied and pasted or published in another site.

A lot of people's works have been subject to copy and paste. This hurts like hell when someone copies your work without giving you credit for it.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Steve5

That's true. It's so easy for them to take credit for what you've written. They seem to be doing it on purpose. They want to get the benefits of your hard work without putting in the effort.

So it would be in our best interest to avoid publishing stuff we can make into a book. Because we have more control over our work when it's made in book form.

If i were you and if you have good skills to write some interesting poems, then i wouldn't go for publishing printed books or publishing it somewhere as articles. Your best shot would be to make your own ebooks, even with few poems, then you have great opportunity to sell them anywhere, starting from here on SEOLads, ebay, amazon thousands of other places on internet. It could build nice income for you and you wouldn't need to worry about shipping because downloadable products are easy to deliver. Ne expenses for printing etc... Btw, ebooks are future!

I agree. Going the ebook route with poems seems to be the better choice compared to writing a blog or article about the poem. Collecting or composing a large number of poems then publishing them as ebooks would be profitable.

I also agree that ebooks are the future because I am more inclined to read on an iPad compared to reading the actual paperbound book. It is cheaper and it is convenient to carry and read anywhere.

Ebooks are the thing currently and when you have the right expertise you will generate a lot of cash. I think though that one should test out their content on a site where they post some of their works to see how well they are received.

You may feel that it is smarter to fence your choices by going the independently publishing ebooks. Luckily this is presently especially less expensive and less demanding than it used to be and the last outcome is substantially more palatable. There are a lot of sites which offer this, however remember you should watch out for your work, as there will be no supervisor to ensure that it is proofread.

This is a good option and as long as one is great in their writing and they have a keen editing eye they can take such a route. My question is on the security fo works that you upload to the site since there are numeorus cons on the internet who may steal it.

Publishing company is quite expensive for the starters. I think it will cost you a lot if you will go there by yourself. You need someone who can sponsor and do partnership to your plans like a business so that your poem will be published.

Seriously? I wasn't aware that it's possible to sell poems on the SEOLads community. I have seen a lot of services being sold on the platform but I haven't seen anything like poems being offered up for sale.

How would I go about getting to put it up for sale? Do I have to do it as an ebook?

So do I, I have no idea that it could be. If that is true, I would try to write poem and sell it in SEO. I think much better to find someone who can finance your poem and go to the publisher for the production of your poem.

You have lot of options. Like say poetry.com seems to be one place. But your content may get stolen. If you want to copyright and other legal things. Then write a book and have it in. Because most of the social media sites have stealers who steal content of others. I have also seen some people posting their content on the WordPress. And for them it works out. Another thing is that you can try some of the poetry specific forums too.

Because of the safety of the works, I agree with you that the poster going ahead to write a book is a better choice instead of having to upload it on a site where it is going to get stolen.

Yes stealing is pretty common. And people should be really understanding on the point of the poems. Copyright is always an issues because people don't easily see it and they may copy. So it's better to make use of the kindle or maybe smashwords too.

I wonder why people even do that. Social media is filled with people take others for granted. Now this comes in the form of plagiarized content. I'm dumbfounded by their audacity to do such awful stuff.

I'll take your suggestion into consideration. I hope others too. Putting your content in a book is much safer than posting it online.

I don't know if they are any people left that enjoy poetry but wonders never cease. I just recently discovered poetry. When I was in school I really used to hate it because I never used to understand it. I think it depends on whether you want to publish individual pieces or a whole book on poetry. You can self publish and see how it goes. You can try on Amazon with a sample of your poems, if this does well you can publish more.

When I was in school, even though I had general interest in literature, I did not like poetry. I began writing daily journal at the age of 14. When my father discovered my diary, he said my poems were good. I was not aware that I was already writing poem. I began reading poems only when I published my poetry books. Publishing poetry books is the best option for poets because you can make money from your books.

I think money is not much there in the poetry. Instead the poetry is more useful in the stand up side. Like say those competition and the good places where the poetry has a place. I know some of those places where the poetry can be sold in terms of the events.

I just discovered poetry when I was in high school. Honestly, I'm not gifted with such amazing skills to write poems but I love reading them. It is wonderful that a single line has a lot of meanings. I am amazed by the wide range of emotions and thoughts of the writer. I know that some lines can be hard to understand but there are reliable resources where you can find their real meaning.

Wattpad seems like a possible place to publish poems. It's filled with lots of readers interested to find new content. But getting a following there can be difficult. The challenge comes with the fact that the most favored content is fan fiction.

I don't think they are paid for posting their stories and poems. But there are some stories that requires payment to continue reading. Some got famous and read by so many people then made it to the big screen or some even showed in the television. You just have to create a story that could capture the attention of the readers.

That's the cool thing about Wattpad. You don't really need to write an amazing story. You just have to write something that certain readers will obsess over. Like how fans go crazy over boy bands.

The producers only care about it being marketable. If they can make money off it, then you're likely going to get paid if they like your work.

Yes, the uploader gets paid since he had the authority over his written story. It is like you're now a writer and scriptwriter of your own television series.

You know what, I just visited Wattpad. And I'm happy to share their new beta program. It's called Wattpad Next. It will allow readers to support their beloved authors.

Writers will now be able to earn money through Wattpad. How amazing is that? It's so cool that they've decided to experiment with the idea of monetizing their site.

Now aspiring writers will be more determined to start sharing their stories. I'm definitely interested to join.

Yes, it is famous. Some might even say infamous with regards to writing quality and proofreading. Most readers have somehow gotten used to their bad grammar and frequent typographical errors.

They just want something to read. Reading to them is like a quick cup of coffee. It doesn't have to be quality work. Especially, since it's free.

Totally agree. Wattpad is a good platform for aspiring story tellers/writers and I know a lot of wattpad writers who have already published their books and some even have their stories adapted to TV Shows or Movies. However, just like what you said, it's very hard to get a following there because of the preferred content most readers want and I myself encountered that when I attempted to write stories as well.

I believe it's best to publish your content on a popular social media platform first to at least get traffic. Facebook is one great site where you can post your content, create a Facebook page and distribute your poems from there. The moment you acquire an ample amount of following, offer your services to newspapers and magazines.

I suggest avoiding sites where you're wary of your work being stolen. You should be confident with where you post your work. So if you're not sure, then it's likely not secure enough for your writing.

That is an excellent way to put it. Prevention is indeed much better than cure. But what I have in mind is something different. Like for example, with photographers. There are some sites where they have some system in place not allowing visitors from right-clicking on a photo to prevent them from saving it (right-click disabled websites). Is there a site like that for writers too?

Steve5

I think so. I've seen blogs where that's the case. There are simple measures that prevent stuff from easily being stolen. But the obvious issue is to never underestimate someone who's motivated.

If they really want to steal your work, they'll find ways of doing so. It may take some time and yet I'm sure they'll get what they want.

Yes, of course. If someone's very determined and extremely eager to steal it from you, they surely will. Do you mind sharing the simple measures you mentioned above to prevent others from stealing it?

One way is to prevent copy paste. It's the quickest method most people use to steal someone else's writing. I think there's a feature like this in other blogs and sites.

Simple preventive measures don't really stop them from stealing your work. It only slows them down since they'll have to manually copy your work or use another program.

When I read the title of this thread the first thing that came to my mind is Wattpad. There many sites where you can publish your stories and poems but here in our country, Wattpad is such a great place for posting writings. There are some stories from Wattpad that became famous, some.even made it into the bigscreen. But as I said, there are a lot of platforms you can engage to. Like Facebook, you can create a page or join one and share your poems.

It's really a gamble when you decide to publish your work in Wattpad. It's best for writing that you're okay with possibly being copied. Stuff you've worked hard on is more suitable for publishing as books. You'll have more security and creative control when you publish it as your own eBooks.

I have tried publishing my poems on Word Press, Wattpad and on my social media accounts. Those are good avenues for aspiring poets, you'll get encouragement and help from different people and your friends.

Honestly I’d say start an Instagram account! Two poets I know of (Rupi Kaur and Tyler Knott Gregson) have accounts on there and have a great deal of followers - in the millions and hundreds of thousands respectively! Social media can be a great platform for those works.

Instagram is great too. It's an excellent platform to popularize your content. What I notice is that quotes or poems related to life in general easily gets popular.

You have several options at your disposal. Make them into Ebooks. They will still be published online.

You can publish them in print. It can be expensive but it will fetch you money in loyalties. Go for them.

If it is just publishing then publish on any site online. Hubpages publishes poems.

You can make your own website and publish them

This thread makes me wow. You know, it is already rare to find a trend in the social media that focuses poems. Honestly, it feels like that poems are old school in today's generation. But well, I believe there are still people who appreciates written poems very much. And for those people who are still into poem writing and are still passionate about the art of poems... you have my admiration. Because you know people nowadays are tend to prefer direct conveying of messages in writings.

Poems can be an acquired taste. Not everyone will appreciate them. What's important is that we work towards those who do. We can gain their support through heartfelt written poems. Such that speak truths so deep and encompassing that they must read it again and again.

That's how successful modern poets succeed. The factor of being able to be read again without losing interest is a must.

I feel like poetry is having a bit of a resurgence to be honest. Back when i was at high school about 15 years ago, poetry was still considered as a dated, traditional thing, and we would have to read old poetry as part of our class curriculum.

Its nice to see it having a bit of a comeback though - it’s a beautiful way to express onself.

Well, you don't necessarily have to find a place online where you can publish your poems.

I believe you want to make money from your writing so if you can use your skills elsewhere to make that money it's not all that bad, is it?

I would suggest taking a look at greeting card companies. Since you write poems I'm sure you can create something greeting card companies will be willing to pay for and from what I've heard, you can make quite a lot of money from this.

Give it a stab.

Oh, that's interesting. I like your idea of applying for gift card creators. Have you seen the movie 500 Days of Summer? I believe the protagonist had a job there. It was really sad to see him disillusioned at the very end.

I feel like it's more difficult to find sites for poems. Poetry is a very specific type of writing. So not everyone is able to participate in it. The great thing is that Google can easily show us different options.

One website is called Hello Poetry. They have lots of poems there. Even classics like Ernest Hemingway.

I think that also compared to books. Books is easy to find a site where we can able to publish our books there. I have not seen a book composed of all poems even before.

You can check out Lang Leav. She's really famous for her writing. In fact, she's gone on a book tour in the Philippines. She really appreciates her Filipino fans. They support her so passionately.

I will check her info as well as her books. I never heard about her and kinda interesting because you said that she is caring for her Filipino fans, it is a plus factor for her.

Another plus factor is the quality of her writing. She doesn't only write beautiful poems. She uses words in a way that reveals the deepest truths and emotions in human beings.

That's why many can relate to her writing. It sings with so much honesty and goodness.

There are sites that accept submissions, but it will take months to get an answer from them. Also, there rate are very low so it's better make your own ebook and sell it on Amazon or anywhere.

When you get accepted to those two lunch-ish breaks which vary with the one that was just returned. It should be tighter enough.

That's true. Most writers don't have the time to wait for a response if it takes that long. In fact, they've found more success going to independent publishing. They earn higher royalty rates along with more copyright protection. All you need is a finished book and good marketing along with the right target readers.

Yes, there's a lot of sites where you can post your poem online just have your research first so that you won't get your effort wasted.

I agree. A simple Google search will yield many answers. But the thing to consider is whether you're okay with it being shared by others. I hope people don't plagiarize their content. It's something that happens a lot on the internet.

I think you should try publishing these type of literary works to social media sites through an account first, may be in Facebook or Instagram. As we all know these two are great and widely-used platforms, gaining readers won't be a problem. I've seen a lot of authors start from a simple facebook page, and now they already have published hardcopies of their books. I personally love to read poems, and I get to read good ones on Facebook.

I guess they're just worried about copyright issues. Lots of people are capable of stealing their works. Especially, if it's incredibly well-written. You need to protect something you've worked hard on.
