    As I understand it this is a new set just starting, but once you enter, you do have to judge what they send you.

    Sounds very interesting.  Now I'll have to write poetry and fiction wink  Thanks though I'm sure there are tons of citizens of Hubville who can really benefit from this.

      Does sound interesting, will have to start writing fiction, as I write non-fiction, but to try my hand at a bit of poetry.

    Thank you. I used .com and found it alright. I notice many are putting in 5, I guess that increases the chances. Are you entering? Just being nosy...lol

      LOL, Jackie, you are not being nosy!  Well, it does sound interesting, but I need to get busy here on HubPages and caught back up first!  LOL   Your fiction stories are always amazing and should win many times!!!

      I did enter five poems, yes. Wanted to get my money's worth, right?

    Oh, I thought it was $6 per poem.

        Writers should not have to pay money to enter their writing into a contest. That is just wrong!

    Wow, OK. Thanks!

      Be sure to read the rules carefully. I dropped the ball on the first round and did not vote on the ones I was sent on time, so my submission was dropped.

    This is the last day to enter your poems or stories into this contest at Sixfold. It offers $$ prizes and website publication too...

      So there is a charge for each entry?
      Do you know if they are as strict on romance themed pieces as they are here?

        Six dollars for five poems, maybe 6 for each story, they set all that out pretty well at the site.

        The readers/submitters are the ones who vote on the entries.

    Honestly, it feels to me like this is oriented to make money for the owner more than anything else.

      "This" meaning HP or Sixfold?

        Sixfold, that is what this thread is about.  And from my point of view HP is giving me money, 6F is asking me to give them money.  It looks like even some who are "published" by them end up in the red.

          Six bucks to enter five poems in a contest is not a big investment. I doubt if poems make any money on HP. But, hey, it is your call, I am just calling attention to a chance for publication, not arm twisting.

            And I was just giving my impression like other people in this thread did. 

            I don't post my poetry on Hubpages either.  There are as lot of avenues for poetry and which you use depends on what your goals are.

              My goal is to become a famous writer, get incredibly wealthy, buy tons of material goods and come back a few years later and tell everyone I was wrong... money buys happiness and owning an expensive car brought peace on earth for me and all my descendants. What site can I go to to achieve this end?

                If that happens you could probably afford a Nathaniel.

                    I can't help if folks assume or read between the lines.  Purely innocent, I assure you.  lol
