I am receiving too many emails, how do I stop this?
If you would like to reduce the amount of email notifications you receive simply head to your profile settings and toggle on or off the notifications you wish to receive. You can also follow or unfollow specific forum thread categories and even individual posts so that you only stay in the loop for topics you're interested in! If however you would like to continue to receive our monthly Cove round up newsletter do not unsubscribe and make sure to set your spam filter to allow emails from email@example.com
How do I get more people to read my work?
Here at The Poetry Cove we encourage community. If you are simply 'poem dumping' whereby you share your own poetry without engaging with anyone else or other categories such as our Discussion threads, you may actually be REDUCING the likelihood of growing your readership. Get in on the fun and engage with other posts that aren't your own and you may find people are more inclined to engage with yours! Who knows, your new best friend could be a comment away!
There's a post on the forum I find offensive, how do I avoid such content?
We are sorry to hear that! Our forum C.O.Os and Admins work very hard to keep the forum a safe, and encouraging place whilst also remaining open for expression! Sometimes they may miss something however, so if you see anything that is offensive and needs removing or a content warning, please report it to us right away by clicking the three dots at the top right of any post and we will deal with it right away!

The Poetry Cove says it supports, nurtures and leads new poets, how do I take advantage of this?
The Poetry Cove is here to provide opportunity and support to poets of all knowledge and backgrounds. It is our priority! That being said, the more you put into the Cove, the more you will get out. We have C.O.Os and admins, social media teams, talent agents and our founder Adam Gary consistently scanning the community for outstanding voices and committed poets to offer new and exciting opportunities to. The more involved you are, the more opportunities that will be offered to you! Of course, not everyone is here to further along their career, some members just enjoy the craft of poetry as a hobby and we LOVE and respect that so won't at all be offended if an offered opportunity is turned down.
