Introduction to Rate Poems

Rate poems: get an audience, be an audience!One thing has become clear to us over the years. More than anything, most poets yearn to have an audience for their work. They want their writing “out there” for the world to read. At Poetry Nation, we make that dream come true. In order to receive an audience, however, poets must all do their share. The easiest way to do that is to read and rate poems from other writers. Click “Start Rating Poems Now” to jump in!

Rate Poems: Get an audience, Be an audience!

When you upload a poem to your profile, you can receive ratings and comments from other poets. Also, every member can rate and comment on the poems of other members. The more poems you rate, the quicker you move up the weekly rankings. You will increase the amount of attention and traffic your poem receives. So, being active gives poets a voice, provides feedback, rewards involvement, and increases your chances of winning a contest or monthly challenge.

Members who rate more poems will see their own poems move onto the home page. To keep things fair and competitive, you will have your status (level of involvement) reset each week. Every member can vote for themselves one time per poem.

Rate Poems: Guidelines

When rating poems, consider how well the poem grabs your attention. Also consider creativity as well as the use of strong, distinctive language and various poetic elements. Read our guidelines to get an idea of how our judges look at and rate poems.

                  Make Friends, Share Poems

                  There are limitless ways to get involved within the Poetry Nation community. You can become friends with current members or invite new people to join. Connecting with other poets deepens your ability to share ideas, gain inspiration, and garner attention for your work. You might bond with a poet who gravitates toward like subject matter or who embodies a similar style of writing. On the other hand, teaming up with a poet whose style contrasts with yours might challenge you and stretch the boundaries of your own creativity. By sharing your poems and collaborating with others, you contribute to a larger poetic network and create a more diverse tapestry of ideas. Let’s shape the future of poetry together and make invaluable friends in the process!
