Tips on Submitting Poetry
Before submitting a poem, there are a few guidelines you should follow to insure the most visitors reach your poem and abide by PoemofQuotes rules.
- Please use correct capitalization within the title and description areas. By doing so, this will allow visitors to easily read your poem title and description within the search results of major search engines like Google.
- Fill out all boxes correctly and accurately. By writing the correct keywords and description of the poem, it will help visitors better understand the poem before reading it. As well, write a complete description of the poem without giving away the entire meaning. Instead of writing one or two words, write a complete sentence to insure the best readability and most complete assessment of the writing. For the keywords, try using words which describe the poem, but separated by comas. For a poem about a break up, try using the keywords "break up poem, broken heart poem, relationship poem" or something similar - just don't spam or it will give negative results instead of positive ones and you may possibly be banned from PoemofQuotes.
- Before submitting, make sure your poem has line breaks for each meter. You can do this just as you were using a normal text editor; by pressing Enter. If after submitting the poem you notice an error in the way it is displayed, view the poem (while you are signed in) and a link which will allow you to edit the poem will appear.
- Make sure you have checked the poem over for any grammatical or spelling errors. Sometimes a mistake is overlooked after just glancing over it once or twice. Try reading the poem out loud and if possible, have someone else proof read it beforehand.
