"By Request Only Contest Part (1)"
Blog Posted:2/9/2010 2:06:00 PM

 

<SPAN lang=EN> <P><FONT color=#ff0000 size=4>“By Request Only Contest Part (1)”</FONT></P> <P>I am going to go ahead and post this contest. I have 22 requests, and after three days, requests have dwindled to zero. 22 is a good solid number. Each of the 22 who have Request Numbers, and only those 22 are allowed to submit. Your name will match your number in the Contest posting.</P> <P>The Contest will be in <FONT size=4>two parts </FONT>because we are only allowed to submit on poem per contest.<FONT color=#ff0000> <FONT size=4>"By Request Only Part (1)"</FONT></FONT> will be Posted within the hour and you may submit your <FONT size=4><FONT color=#006400>Nature Poem</FONT> </FONT>then. I will allow three days to submit.</P> <P><FONT color=#a52a2a size=4>The same Poets will be allowed to submit in both Parts. “By Request Only Part (2)” will begin as soon as “By Request Only Part (1)” results are posted and the theme will be Anything Goes.</FONT></P> <P>I regret any confusion and believe it would have been much more fun if we could have submitted 2 poems. I have broken the contest into 2 parts to be fair. If we submit both poems on one sheet I will know both are submitted by the same poet. I could not find any equitable method to be unbiased, therefore, I hope you accept my apology and submit for both Part (1) and Part (2) of the contest.</P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493 size=4><STRONG><EM>“By Request Only Part (1)” will be posted by 5pm Central Standard Time.</EM></STRONG></FONT></P></SPAN>
