How Poetry.com Works!

Poetry.com welcomes all amateur poets and wants to encourage your participation in the world’s largest and most vibrant poetry community. We have established a system of points and badges which you’ll earn for every different type of action you take. For example, you will receive points for each poem you write, each poem you review, etc.

Achievement Badges

When you earn enough points for each category of action, you will receive a badge. There are currently 8 different badges you can earn, for eight different actions you can take.
