Dec. 31, 2011 - PRLog -- For 2012,  The World of Words by Elias Tobias would like to  significantly expand the reader contributions, as it has been suggested by comments about the blog.  In March of 2007, Elias Tobias began the Free Open Poetry Forum the encourage people to submit poems for others to read. While the Forum is still around, it has not been used much as I anticipated.

I would like to keep this concept and expand it to beyond poetry to other styles of submissions, such as regular guest writers with columns. I imagine the forum being a virtual coffeehouse where ideas could be exchanged for the benefit of the readers of the poetry blog.  

All material appearing first on The World of Words by Elias Tobias would be part of the collective copyright of this blog, however any further publication rights beyond the first compilation rights would belong to the original authors.  All published material from contributing authors would be subject to editing by The World of Words by Elias Tobias.

So get your cup of coffee and look a few rules, first. The  Free Open Poetry Forum on the World of Words  by Elias Tobias can include material on most any subject  related  to poetry using any form or style (or lack thereof), in English, and must be original material by the author making the submission. There will be no financial benefit for submissions.

Length can vary depending of the work, but poems should be no more than 30 or 35 lines. All material can be emailed to and the material will be reviewed by the webmaster. Type “Free Poetry Forum Submission” in the subject line, as I we receive many other email messages. Sharp, clear photos of the authors may accompany a poem with a brief background of the author.  Also you should send a few poems at a time and work should be your best work.

All material for the Free Open Poetry Forum will be linked to the category with that name on the right side of the page so people can find their work easier, and those who have multiple regular submission such as columns may have their own category.  Of course, all material in this site can be found by the internal search box, also on the right side of the page.

Like most public Web sites, such as those connected with universities, poetry will not be accepted if it is:
1.    Racist or discriminatory to any race, ethnicity or country of origin.
2.    Sexually explicit or pornographic.
3.    Extremely violent in nature or it displays excessive use of profanity.
4.    Terroristic in nature or supportive of terrorist activity.

After an article or poem is posted, the author retains further publishing rights, and only first publishing rights are claimed by this Web site since the entire contents are copyrighted by the Webmaster. Whether the comments are positive or negative, it is the hope the open poetry forum serves as a base for comments are fair and constructive so people can become better writers.

Best of all it’s free and other writers can benefit from the exposure of being in the one of the top 1.2 million web sites in the world.   So get your ideas and pens ready for the Free Open Poetry Forum on The World of Words by Elias Tobias.
