Bloggers PhotoI'm a 25 year-old Canadian gal living in the nation's capital. I love to paint, draw, sing and write. I've always enjoyed creative writing, but I only started writing poetry last year - and it's becoming my favourite form of creative expression. I have already learned so much from the talented poets here at PS.

Life has been FAR too serious lately, so my latest contest aims to lighten the mood ;)

The ONLY acceptable forms are: LIMERICK, CLERIHEW, or FOOTLE.

*Your entry must be a new poem, so make sure you date your poem. (Any poem without a date will not be considered in this contest.)

*Do NOT write your name on your poem. I judge my contests blind, so I don't want to know who has written what.
