Making profit off of poetry

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make money off of poetry?
I'm in need of abit of income, is there any sites or blogs or websites where I can submit poetry for money in return?

Sadly Shiloh very very few poets make a living off their work. It is most common for them to have another job to supplement their passion for words. Most of the UK's poets could not live on the proceeds from the sale of their poetry books alone.

That's difficult. To do that, you have to be very lucky. I know a lot of poets who are very, very good writers who don't make a living off it. It was said there are a lot more poetry writers than readers once - not sure if that is true but it does raise a point.

My wife makes a living off her writing but that is copy writing.

You can read in a literary cafe, there are special public and different competitions for writers.
