So back in 2014, I submitted a poem to one of their contests. They sent me a letter saying that my poem had passed to the next round and would be published. I payed them the money and to this day I haven't received my book or another letter regarding the competition from them. They continue to email me about how great my poetry is/was and how I am "a premier member" but to be honest this is a... Read more

I bet you that virtually every poem submitted to them get's accepted. They then send you a letter, saying they will publish your poem. All you have to do is send THEM $20 and then $49.95 for the book and $9 shipping.. So, instead of them paying YOU for your poem, you wind up paying THEM $78.95! Really? Of course you will want to buy extra copies of this book to give to everyone you know..... Read more

I am not pissed. I present a rebuttal to the complaint. The letter states that, "As a semi-finalist you've earned the opportunity to be published, and therefore we'd like to feature your poem in our upcoming multi-volume series Beyond the Sea." When I entered the contest, there was no mention of being entered into a multi-volume series, so this is aside from the contest. I don't see how this... Read more

I sent in one of my poems that I wrote years ago to a poetry contest in Parade magazine, claiming $25,000 in prizes. I got a letter stating that I made it to the semi-final round. They want me to send $ for my own book with my poem. I'm glad I googled Eber & Wein Publishing Company. What a scam! I will not send my official contest form in. This makes me sad... My poetry has always been... Read more

I really don't see why everyone is so pissed. I received my book and everything else I paid for when it was published. This simply takes time, and I'd bet if you check with the complaints listed, they got their books after awhile. This is no scam, simply a lengthy process, as it would be anywhere. For them to offer a free poetry contest is simply unheard of. People should stop complaining and... Read more

I was written by Eber & Wein and told I too had advanced to the semifinals. No, I did not submit money to them for a profile at the time because I was unemployed at the time and had no funds to do so. Fortunately I didn't have money to do this, because I would also be among those who lost money. In essence the pain I'm feeling is that I thought I had an opportunity to share my passion...

Last year I entered a poetry contest which was put on by the Eber and Wein Publishing firm. The contest seemed legitamite at the time so I entered as I have entered other contests in the past. I've been waiting for quite some time and have sent them several e-mails and they have yet to respond to my complaint. I have not received my book which I'm still waiting for and I think for that amount of... Read more

I find it so rude that companies like you exits. I was so thrilled when I got your letter, telling me that I go on to the semi-finals, for a chance to win a $2000 first prize. After bragging to my sister, she told me to check this out. I was appalled by what I read. The sad part is, I just today sent them a check for the book only,$58.95. That check Will be immediately stopped. The only way to... Read more
