Do you see a trend here? I suggest to my students they write a "chapbook" or publish a compilation on Smashwords.com for free...CreateSpace affiliated with Amazon...is also free.
Poetry.com, the online telephone book scam, uses onion skin paper to publish thousands of "award-winning" poetry. They invite you to pay $65 for your copy and read your poem in Florida, hosted by a forgotten celebrity--usually a singer.
Be very wary of any poetry contest...make sure it's legit...and don't send them money. You're better off publishing on HubPages if you are a volcanic poet that must allow your hot words to flow down the literary mountainside.
