Poetry America / League of American Poets / Publishing scam?
My message reads like all the others. I submitted my daughters poem, received a letter from Maggie Whitford suggesting her poem would make a 'nice addition' to the special edition of their anthology series entitled: 'Inspirations - A collection of short works' that was currently being published. I could also purchase the book in which the poem would be displayed. On 7/6/07 I sent a check for $86.45 (cashed 7/19/07) for 6 books along with the poem proof. It is now the end of Jan '08 and I have rec'd nothing. I have emailed 3 times, phoned 4 times (3 times the voicemail box was full and the 4th time the number was disconnected), and faxed. Nothing! That is when I found this complaint site and realized that this has happened to others. Sounds like one person did eventually get her book so I'm not sure what to think. I guess the next step it to contact the BBB. Buyer beware!
