Marie asked Ruta Sepetys:

I love writing and creating things and making them my own art. I can turn trash into art.Everything I write is straight from my heart it God given gift comes natural to me. If I put my poems and books anywhere should it be copyright through post office or it all ready copyright online when you put it up? thanks for your help.

Ruta Sepetys Hello Marie!

How wonderful that you can - and do - create art from the heart!
I'm not sure about copyright laws for art. But for books and poetry, I would suggest you consult the guidelines from the U.S. Copyright Office. Below is a link to their basic manual. I hope this helps and thanks again!
