Having been told by a fair few people over the years that my poems are something that should be put down and noted by others on cards I've come to realise that they might have a point. I'm not a pro, far from it- im your average joe who writes from the heart on mothers, family, life and other topics that effect people emotionly and by humour! If any one would be intrested in reading some of my writings please get in touch.

I have been writing for a while now. People tell me that i have great potential i just have to apply it. The only thing keeping me from being sucessful is that i dont know where to begin. It would be very helpful if some one could tell me where to start.

thank you..

Writing has been such a big part of my life since I was a child. As an adult I still enjoy writing. I love to see my thoughts come to life on paper. So many people have told me that I have a wonderful gift and I would like the opportunity to unwrap it. I'm currently an English student who has decided to make writing a part of my future. I love sitting down after a long day and unloading my thoughts. Being creative and imaginative takes me back to my childhood and away from the problems of everday stress. I would like to know more about submitting my poems. I am an ear to anyone who can tell me where to begin.
Thanks

I am a young person that has a passion to write. I have never published anything, but I have submited my peoms to contest in which I was picked to go to Vegas to read one of my poems, but I could not afford to go. I have always wrote letters and peoms, and made my own cards but only for family members. I feel that I am ready to make the next step, but I need a little help. I am good at writing things on short notice, when stuff comes to me to write about I write. I have wrote a peom for mothers day in one day with the thoughts that I had in my head and gave it to my mother she cried. So if anyone could help me get started I would be in great thanks.

For those of you who like to write poems for cards, this might interest you.

I've always written funny poems for family members and friends, and inserted them into birthday and Christmas cards.

They're always a hit and my cards never get thrown in the blue box. ;)

I started using a card service a oouple of years ago that allows me to custom create cards with photos on the front and inside.

They're REAL cards, with real postage stamps, and I decide how they're designed and what goes into them. The cards are less than $1 each and are printed, stuffed, stamped and mailed for me.

If you would like to get your poems out through cards, this system could be a great tool for you.

You could even offer to custom create cards and write poems and sell it as a service.

You're welcome to explore the technology and may send a free card through my gift account at www.hbbsourcecards.com

Just click on the "Click Here To Send A Free Card" link and follow the audio guided instructions.

When you're done, click on the SOC Opportunity link in the bottom right of the screen. This should give you some ideas on how you can put this to use for you.

*Note: Because this is a gift account, you will not be able to send a custom card, but there is a link titled, "Picture Plus" that shows you how it's done.

If you need any assistance, feel free to contact me at the number provided on the web site.

To your success,
Laurie Hayes

I used to work for hallmark and I'm afraid they do not buy in poetry or photos, it is all produced in house: so you would need to work for the company in Kansas City.

Words are useful to me as I venture into time.
They help me welcome freedom and strengthen my desires to do the best I can. Words can carry me into the world of make believe and start me in a new direction every morning. Words are the makeup of my being and help me to express my feelings yesterday, today and tomorrow. Words introduce me.

Dear Hallmark,

I have not only surprised others who have commented and critiqued my work for my creativity, I have surprised myself as well. My writing has proved to be theraputic and has helped me through some very difficult times. The adventures of my family in times past has provided me the tools it takes to do what I love the most.

I would love the opportunity to work with Halmark and share my creativity with all. If there are opportunities that I would be suited for or if there are opportunites for one to work from home this would be the ideal job for me.

I am happy to provide you with copies of my work should you be interested.

Thank you
Ramona

Rena in Alamogordo, New Mexico

I have written for over 20 years and have 10 notebooks filled with poetry. I have never really shared my poems with anyone, poetry has always been my way of expressing my feelings, Some of my friends came over one night and I had mentioned that I like to write poetry and they asked if they could read some of the poems. I brought out my notebooks and they were shocked at my writing. My friend never knew that I loved to write and they said I was crazy for hiding my poems in a box under my bed instead of sharing them with others. I have always wanted to write either Cards or turn my poetry into a song. I hope Someone out there can help me!
Thank You!
