A new scam from the folks of P.com.
Called the "poet's workshop" they have you pay to get full reviews "full membership", or give four reviews for each post "free trial" and only be able to see the first ten words of any review of your work.

The ripoff comes when you post your work.

"Individuals who submit their poetry, reviews and other content or photos to us retain their copyrights, but grant to us the right to reproduce and distribute the submitted material on this Website, or in printed form."

Printed form means they can place it in their book without asking
