International Society of Poets — Poetry contests
No, you don't have to do anything if you didn't want to get your award! I am a distingushed member of the international society of poets and have been for years.
I have been published in the poetry books and on the tapes several times, i did purchase first book i was published in because i wanted to, not because if i didn't my poem wouldn't be published!
People amaze me, just because you recieve these offers does not mean you are being scammed, it is up to you as to what it is you want to do.
Just to let you know, that it is because of the poetry society that i actually self - published my very first poetry book in 2003.
Keep trying roksana and you will get there. Don't let your feelings turn you into a skeptic as the only thing that will create for you, is self doubt and you will not succeed in your writing endeavors.
I do have to add that i consider myself very fortunate as i travel along my path here, i have come across some very good people who have become my mentors, so i gusee what i'm telling you, if it happened for me, it can happen to you.
Go to my website and check it out and maybe you will see what i mean, ok?
Best wishes for your endeavors
