Thanks Richard!  Funny, I was just reading web information on poetry scams before seeing this, after seeing a poetry contest banner ad here at Passions.

Thank you! As a serious writer, I am grateful to be made aware of these scams. I'm sure I'll be rejected by a lot of the big publishers, but I'll keep trying!

I found this site that might be helpful.
