    Are there any Poets here that actually make money?

    Can I make money (descent money, not just a few dollars) here writing poetry or do I have to write articles?

    Are there any live poets ANYWHERE that make decent money from their poetry? I think, aside from a few very talented AND very lucky souls, making decent money through poetry is reserved for dead poets.

    There have been many poets who made money and became famous.  Carl Sandburg is one of the best...as is William Shakespeare!

    Well, I've been trying for 65 years and haven't found the secret yet! I've come to the conclusion that poetry is an enjoyable way to spend the money I may make from other sorts of writing.

    I'm sure there's a success story and she is a poet & short-story writer.
