Life isn't fair. Poetry isn't fashionable at the moment. If you wanna get rich and famous with rhymes perhaps you should look into becoming a rapper - writing poetry for the sake of getting lots of attention seems like a poor motive to me anyway. It's a blessing in disguise preventing terribad poetry from being born.

Whoa! Guys and girls keep calm. You know what happens on these forums when people get too angry 
we may feel overshadowed but never give up writing poetry. It is what comes best from the heart maybe it time to write a poem about how you feel right now and called it Overshadowed or forgotten. Here is one for both of you.

Left be hind forgotten.
a part in history.
Now why are we forsaken?

When no crashes or wires
or fault of internet desires
No recharging or loading.

Ha!Ha, poets get the shaft. But short story writers get monthly contests where you can win an ipad mini. Honestly that's probably as good as it gets. If you get published in a literary mag you might get a three issue subscription or fifty dollars. 

Are you expecting webook to do more? Weekly top poet contests might be fun. They could publish a book of top poems and sell it to the poets and their friends and families.

OK IS this it? Novel writing is all very well and good - BUT there ARE other forms as well!! Will there ever be ANY hope for the short story writer OR poets in the world? Are we doomed forever to be over shadowed by the G. D. NOVELISTS?!!
