Eight Word Anniversary Contest Clarification

Blog Posted:2/4/2019 12:35:00 PM
Just wanted to post a reminder of the contest requirements - The text must be between 10 lines minimum and 20 lines maximum The word anniversary must be in the title There was a question about using a variation of the required words - while I am OK with, for instance, favored or pivoted, I prefer for the words to be used in the form given - after all, that is part of the challenge! Thank you to everyone who has entered so far, I have enjoyed reading all your poems!
