Hello / Goodbye Contest


Blog Posted:12/12/2012 12:41:00 PM
Hello Soupers as it has been a while since I have sponsored a contest I thought I would start one now.

I would like you to write a poem to your 16year old self, what advice would you give?
would you change anything?

I would like you to write from the heart, give me a taste of who you were and what you did or didn't like. You can make it funny or not, up to you.

Any form except 'I Don't Know', but a min of 12 lines please...

Please put date on but no names....Remember No Names in your poem!!

Any questions soup or ask here.

Good luck and have fun....

    I have a poem in mind that I wrote recently, but it is not biographical - however, it is true to the age group "sweet 16". Will this be acceptable? Love, Su
