Awards & Recognition for the poem ‘Caught in Loneliness’

How long has it been since my last post. Hehe. I’m lagging behind. Don’t worry about that, as I am here with some good news today.

Some of you might have read a poem I wrote last year titled ‘Caught in Loneliness’. Well, a few days after posting it here, I submitted it to a contest on poetry.com. I did not anticipate anything. I didn’t get any feedback for that for a long time.

They took their time and surprised me last week. I got few impressive e-mails, and to add on to that, few mails waiting at my previous address which I didn’t care to pick up till last week. Yeah! Keep in mind that I’m careless. I still haven’t given my new address to the phone company and some other places… Hehe..

Anyway, I got a few awards and some more recognitions for that poem.

Editor’s Choice Award – Presented by Poetry.com and International Library of Poets.

Immortal Verses – It’s to be featured on this anthology, deluxe hardbound edition, coming out soon! You could order it online at poetry.com Hehe..

The Sound of Poetry – It has been selected to be recorded in this 33 track, three-CD set, with 1 track for each poem. These 33 poems are selected from all the poems that had won Editor’s Choice Award.

Noble House Poet Fellowship Award 2007 – Not only a certificate; includes a gold pin (24-karat) wow!

The best poems and poets of 2007 – It’s a new book, to be published soon, with 1 page for each of the selected 200 poets. I’ve been asked to write a new poem for that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Distinguished Member – Nominated by the Board of directors and advisory committee of the International Society of Poets.

By the way, that poem is in ‘Poets Choice – Rate my Poem’ contest now. You could go and vote here.

I don’t find that poem so great and it’s been a while since I lost interest in writing poems. What the heck! Maybe I should give another try.

Cheers!
Hammett

P.S. Hope you wouldn’t mind typos and grammatical errors. I’m in a rush ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hammett, I have been selected each time I write a poem for poetry.com and so have all my friends and cousins. Eventually they ask you to pay some amount for the collection to be sent to you or something. Its just a way to make money.

    Hope this does not offend you. Just thought I should let you know.

    actually anyone who writes a poem for poetry.com gets an award. it’s something like a Nigerian scam. they will want to sell you a leather-bound book that includes your poem.

    Hey congrats. One of my poems has also been selected for publication in ‘Immortal Verses’. But I don’t think that’s a book they sell in regular book stores. I did some research about poetry.com on the net. the results are posted in this post of mine

  12. Congrats!Your poem was lovely but poetry.com does that to everybody who sends in their awards.I am still getting such mails for registering to get membership here and there.

    Anyways,keep going!
