Dear Nichole,
We recently informed you that you and your poetic accomplishments could have been honored during the International Society of Poets Convention recently held at the legendary Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 19–22, 2007, even though you were unable to attend.
Please note that because so many of our selected poets took advantage of this opportunity, we have extended the time for you to elect to receive your 2007 awards and benefits of ISP membership. All that is necessary is for you to allow us to present one of your poems at our next convention and for you to elect to receive all of the awards and benefits of ISP membership that we have scheduled for you.
Nichole, your poem will be presented at the next ISP Convention!
Your awards, which will be shipped to you at this time, include your custom engraved lead crystal Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Award, your bronze Commemorative Award Medallion, your ISP decal, and your Full One Year Membership into the International Society of Poets for 2007-2008, and a subscription to its magazine, Poetry Today.
Your poem will be presented at the largest and most prestigious gathering of poets in history and it’s so very important for us and your fellow poets to hear your poem read with the same passion and emotion which you intended when you wrote it. This is why we have arranged for a professional poetry reader to present your poem, allowing your poetry to receive the exposure and recognition you deserve. All you need to do to have your work presented is submit your poem quickly. Just imagine . . . all of the attending guests at the upcoming International Society of Poets Annual Convention will hear your poetry read.
Now, let me tell you a little about the awards and special items you will receive once you confirm your participation by sending us your poem:
Your Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Award is a magnificent work of art in itself ($300.00 value), made from imported lead crystal. It is hand-engraved and mounted on a solid marble base. This will be the first time ever that we have bestowed these crystal awards. This impressive award features a finely crafted hand holding a blue crystal globe, symbolizing the Society's mission to spread poetry around the world. It is so valuable that we have designed a special carrying case just for this award.
Your Bronze Commemorative Award Medallion ($40.00) is a forged bronze medal with intricate detail that’s brilliantly displayed on a colorful nylon ribbon.
Full one year membership in the International Society of Poets for 2007-2008 ($60.00 value) entitles you to a personalized membership card, an embroidered ISP patch, an ISP window decal, a one year subscription to Poetry Today magazine, and entry into exclusive poetry contests for members only.
Nichole, all that’s required for us to immediately send you all of these awards is for you to send us your poem that will be formally presented at the upcoming convention. Your convention poem can be written on any subject, in any style, and can be up to 40 lines in length. Additionally, we must ask you to send a nominal fee ($169.00 plus shipping and handling) to cover the expenses we incur presenting your poetry, and to cover the costs to insure and ship all of these extremely bulky and heavy awards to you. For this small fee you will receive over $400.00 worth of ISP membership materials, including your lead crystal Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Award!
Nichole, my purpose for making you this offer is to recognize your poetic accomplishments. I also hope that you will see for yourself what an amazing organization we are. I sincerely look forward to meeting you in person and having you read your artistry in front of thousands of fellow poets who attend this live awards event every year. Unfortunately that’s not the case this year, so we are trying to do the next best thing. I'd like to offer you one more special gift when you send in your poem and confirmation form, because I would really like to see you in person. I will send you a coupon for $100.00 off a future convention. That brings the total value for this offer to over $500.00! We are making a tremendous effort to include your poetry at the next convention, and we hope that you will return you confirmation form and poem as soon as possible.
Go here to submit your poem.
Steve Michaels
Convention Chairperson
International Society of Poets
