What to Submit?
rules, Rules Rules,..... Read them carefully. All rules MUST be followed if you hope to place. this time out I will not be limiting the winners to a specific amount ( 5 or 10) IF you follow all the rules and IF I like it, you will place. I have had some people send me mail asking what they could do to improve their chances of placing so this time out I will not limit the winners like I usually do because so many really good poems do not place in my contests because they are not in my top 10 choices. ..... again, if you follow the rules and I like it, it WILL place
RULES:1) the only form acceptable is English Quintain (between 1 and 5 stanzas)
2) This Must be a brand new poem written specifically for this contest
3)date written must be on the entry so I know it is new
4)It MUST be Romantic,( dazzle me with hearts and flowers etc)
I like a very precise rhyme in my Quintains, if it is vague or only "sorta" rhymes it will probably not place
First Prize, Glory
Second Prize, Glory
Third Prize, Glory etc.
