it's one to pounder over when many are already selected
I've found that many use it to win you over and publish your
work ......sure they give you your copy rights but they make
all the royalities for the use of thousands of artist work .......

it's hard to say who on the ups it have a lot of pros and cons
it's who you feel is real and what they offering how winners are
selected or picked and what winners recieve, every thing has a price

just beware ......i've been down this street before

that semifinals will ask for money to buy a book many times it all come
down to the poet spending money for products ....likes a copy of the book
your poetry will be displayed in and or a voice copy of your poem which someone
else will be reading even the thing about your name in lights with a time offer
price and many times you will see it come out and say 49.95 to you but it's cost
is 69.95

what i learn is we make these contest people $$$$ with our work from thousands
of poets good one's new one's and young one's even not so good one's everyone
a winner to publish there work in a hardbound book and they get all the Money for
it all you get is a promise to be one of there finalist but on the end never win that
final i have take this trip before and learned the pros and cons of contests

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
