These policies established 1 June 2009.
This website exists solely for the purpose of making the general public aware of the pleasures of poetry. It is sustained through the generosity of a few, the artistic and technological talents of a few more, whatever advertising or sponsorships can be appropriately but not gratuitously obtained, and the enthusiasm of random strangers around the world. Poems featured here are selected because the owner of the site believes they suit the preference of this site's readership. While featured poems may reflect the influence of the site owner's background, occupation, religious or political affiliation, or personal experiences, the site owner receives no compensation in exchange for featuring or promoting a particular poet, poem, or publication. The views and opinions expressed here are purely that of the site owner and the owner reserves the right to publish or not publish any comments made in response to featured content.
Periodic contests may be held in an effort to generate new material or poems on specific themes, or to provide funding for site expenses and/or contest awards and honorariums. Contest rules and deadlines will be clearly displayed.
Living authors of framed poems sold through the YDP Store will receive 50% of the profit on any sale of his/her poems. A check will be mailed to authors upon delivery of the order.

The purpose of Your Daily Poem is to celebrate, explore, and bring attention to deserving poets and poetry.
