    Wow! This is a great opportunity for poets and thanks for sharing the list. I’m no poet, but anyone with a bit of talent could certainly try applying to one of the companies you listed. As a member of Wealthy Affiliate I have to agree the platform can help you build a successful online business:)

    Wow! I didn’t even know you could submit a poem and get paid. I was never very good at poetry writing in school for some reason I had difficulty.

    If I had the ability to write poetry and feel confident I would certainly look into these sites. Sadly it’s not for me Aparna.

    I do like listening to poetry being read out loud.

  • anna McGarvie

    Really?? Wow! Writing poetry can be quite lucrative, if you are good at it! I’m no good at poetry, but if I was, I would totally be looking into these websites for making some cash writing poetry!

    Another great article!

    I absolutely love to write poetry. I regularly wrote poetry books for fun during middle school and high school, and I even had one of my poems published in our school’s newspaper (to my shock, surprise and delight. Haha. God is good!). Where there is not a niche for poetry, create one. Where there is a poetry niche, expand on it, offer new insights, and make it better/more engaging/more influential and personal to the reader. It’s a blessing that there are websites willing to pay writers for their poems. Poetry is a huge part of the creative arts, and this beautiful form of self-expression should be highlighted and supported. Poetry is a great outlet for many people, a great way to explain one’s innermost thoughts in a way that he/she may not be able to verbalize through spoken words. There is at least one poem that everyone can relate to; that connection can make all of the difference in someone’s life. I have bookmarked your website for future reference. God bless you!

      Oh, you sound like a lover of poetry just like me CN. Thanks for reading my article. I have been mystified by Keats and Shelly and Byron and Shakespeare, all my young days.

    I have written some poems in my college days. But they were love poems lol 😉 So not sure if they will sell for this amount that these famous magazines and newspapers are offering. It might be possible, you never know if I just brush up my poem writing skills a bit or shall I say alot more!

    This is an interesting opportunity to make money selling your own poetry. Where you are not investing anything apart from your time. Thank you for sharing.

    My friend is a great poet and he loves writing poems. He is struggling to make money and you have opened a door for him. You have provided much need information to each site that provides some monetary info. It will be very motivating for him to start a website and scale it. Thanks for sharing this wonderful info.

    I write some poetry in moments of spare time. Suddenly the inspiration and idea are there and I just sit down and write. Maybe I should send some of my poems to the companies you ave listed just to see if I will get accepted?

    Great idea, your hobby and getting paid for it. But I guess that it might be difficult to get accepted as there would certainly be a lot of people that are trying to do the same thing.
