How would one go about making money off of their poetry? Are there any places online that you get paid to be a poet?
I would suggest you put together a E-Book of your poems and sell it on Amazon and via blogs. Poetry isn't a true money maker because it doesn't have a consumer following. Reading sure, purchasing, not likely.
If you can make a decent profit from an E-Book, it's one source. You could even make profit from a blog promoting your poems, which would be a second source.
The more resources you use, the better. You need readers. It won't make you much on HP. Or at least I haven't made much from my poems on HP. A click here or there and not for much.
Hope that helps.
You can always submit your work to publisher company for greeting cards. When they accept you, you can make money like that. I published my own book and write poetry on hub. Freelancer poet are always on the clock...lots of opening if your work is approve by the publisher. you can get paid really well up to $100 a poem. Selling your work is awesome but you also would have to enjoy them.
hmm try this website http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/201 … y-markets/ this website has list of publisher that you could send your poem too. making money from poetry is pretty hard because publisher are picky. I am a freelance poet. so far, I am getting contact with poetry magazine and just submit few of my lines to them. Never hurt to try. Self publishing is also good as well...I had my book publish thru lulu.com which you can purchase their promotion to get your book promoted to library that cost about 150 dollar or you could pay $75 to get your book being sold on barnes and noble.
It is extremely unlikely that will will make a lot of money from poetry. The few professional poets tend to actually make their money from teaching, grants, speaking fees etc.
The exceptions would be applied poetry such as greeting card work

What's the difference? Which are you? Are words your passion or your business? Are you a creator or a teacher? Is the product of YOUR writing meant to inspire or inform? I'm so curious...

I realize it takes a while to start making money here. But it's hard to keep going when I only get a few cants for Adsense clicks. How long does it take to start making anything?

I'm new to HubPages, so give me a break if this is a terrible question. I nearly have 40 followers, and I have posted 15 hubs in 5-6 weeks. When do you start making the big bucks?
