Famous Poets Society

The Famous Poets Society was a vanity press[1] that offered a poetry contest, a convention contest, and self publishing opportunities. They had been in operation for over 20 years before suddenly shutting down in 2015, and had published thousands of anthologies and individual books for amateur poets. Their convention contests awarded over $425,000.00 in cash prizes to amateur poets over 8 years.[2] Poets would submit their poems online using the website. All accepted authors received an acknowledgment letter and would pay to be published in an anthology. For their work published, writers were required to buy the anthology in order to receive a copy of it. The BBB currently gives them a rating of "B" and lists 11 closed complaints within the past 3 years.[3]
