I sent a poem in, knowing full well it's a scam.
:3 I'm not paying to see something my work was published in when I have the poem itself. And it's not the first time I've been offered. So if anyone enters a contest, especially if it has something called "Eber & Wein Publishing" in the same statement, know it's a Vanity Scam.
I didn't understand shit lol
I entered a poetry contest for the hell of it.
I made semi-finals.
That gives me the option to buy a copy of the book it's published in.
They really just sell to the dumbasses who want proof their work was published.
It's called a Vanity Scam. They have people buy their own work pretty much, by entering a 'free contest' and getting 'published.'
