Rhyme and rhythm are two of the most essential things to keep in mind when writing and reading poetry. Together, they make up the framework of many poems.

Spotlight on Forms: What is a Haiku?

#Haikus are particularly challenging for writers because, although they are only three lines long, you must convey a compelling and vivid message to your reader in only 17 syllables. http://bit.ly/1KmVWCh

Haikus have spread widely all over the world today, but in Japan, these poems were originally valued for their openness, depth, lightness, and simplicity.

Hey poetry nation,I need help.I forgot the password to my account.When I press the “Get a new password” button on your website, it never works,I never get the link to change my password.I’ve pressed it several times.Could you guys help me out?
I joined poetry nation yesterday. But today I am not able to log into my account as there is no password and nothing works. Nor am I being able to contact the website owners. Please help.
I keep trying to get a new password and I’m putting in the right email but I am not getting the emails and I need into my account
Submitted poem 2 days ago, and now website not letting me back in? Requested 3x for new password, and no email has been received for password change link yet? Seems little fishy to me. Especially when can't contact actual person from website.
This is for you, ignorant buffoon, the result of "Child's Game."
Hey I've been trying to contact Poetry Nation on their website bc you posted something of mine w/out notifying me and I want it either taken down or name changed, please tell me how to contact because your website's "contact us" link does not work!!
I am attempting to send a message to the Poetry Nation staff, but the online form will not let me submit a message. Who can I contact with a question regarding my contest submission?
Yeah i was wpundering when it was going to be judged the semi finals i wrote hates a barrier was woundering how i was doing in the contest
REVIEW: I submitted my poem to their contest and then realized at some point that it had been published on their website under my full name. While it was my fault for not reading the rules/info carefully, I didn’t expect it to be published and was taken by surprise. The poem was kind of weird and it was one of the first things to come up on Google, Bing, and any other search engine when I looked up my name. I sent an email to the webmaster asking that it be removed and got no response, so I called a few days later. The lady I spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful and kind. I highly recommend contacting them via their phone number if you want something fixed! I was so worried after seeing the amount of reviews saying their customer service sucks and that the whole company is a scam, but really relieved when I was able to get my issue fixed both quickly and easily. Also it seems like a wonderful platform to share your work, just be mindful if you don’t want it under your name.
Hi. I am not able to login. Kindly help
hello! my name is Eva Garcia-Mayers and I was selected as a runner up the poetry nation contest and was sent a copy of my poem to edit (by Aug. 1st) in order that it be fit to publish in the upcoming anthology. The thing is that the poem has been cut off towards the end, despite it having been written to the stipulated guideline length. I want to know what to do about this. I do not want an incomplete poem to appear in the anthology I would very much appreciate it if someone could get back to me as soon as possible! thanks
