Do you have a knack for writing and expressing yourself through poems? Would you like to earn some extra money for your unique poetry? If so, there are several sites that are looking for people to submit their original poetry to them online. In order for them to accept and possibly publish your poems, they cannot be previously published anywhere in print, online or accepted for publication.
You may write poetry in your spare time as a hobby but it can be a great stepping stone into being a freelance writer and submitting your content online or just another avenue for you to make extra money from home. The great thing about writing poetry is that you do not have to be an exceptional writer or have previous experience. Poetry can also be a great outlet for those who are not that comfortable writing online or for those who are very good at self-expression.
If this happens to be you or you know someone who excels at doing this, encourage them to explore and submit to some of these poetry writing markets online so that they will be rewarded for their talents.
