      Hi April.  You can actually post your poetry on Helium and get paid to do it!  It's a fun freelance writing site and they take all sorts of 'how to' articles, creative writing articles, and poetry.  They even offer contests and ways to get paid by other companies to write.  Good money!  Check it out if you're interested:


      Good luck!

        Does Helium pay for creative writing now?  The last I knew they weren't.

        I've heard a lot of bad things about Helium so I would make sure you read their terms of service before you post there. From what I remember they can keep your content even if you decide to leave the site. This may make it harder for you to publish your poetry again later on.

        One of my friends is a poet and has just started posting on a site and has a mentor there - it sounds good form what's she's told me. I'll ask her what the web address is.

      Writing.com is a great site for that.

    Guess that would depend on what you hope to accomplish by posting it.  I don't have the answers, but I do have some questions I think you need to ask yourself so that you can better tell others what you're looking for.

    Are you trying to get exposure for your work? If so, is it to make money? Just for the thrill of having others read it? Are you trying to break into some field and use this as a stepping stone? 

    Some sites are better suited for some things than others.

    Apryll, if you are looking for just a site to learn about writing in general I have two recommendations one is AuthorsbyDesign.com and the other is fictionfactor.com. Both are geared to the new and accomplished writer and have both present at each site to offer help in writing.

    emule is quite poet friendly I think if you want to improve your writing. If you want to promote it, here's as good as anywhere.

    This is a very good source of publishing opportunities which you can search on the basis of genre, theme, length, payment, etc.

    Simply do a search for creative writing on Google and you will find many. I found one in a few seconds, I do not have the URL unfortunately.
