Contest Update

Blog Posted:8/15/2020 12:11:00 PM

Just want to thank everyone who has written for the Mystery Seeds contest.  I've enjoyed reading both humorous and serious takes on the theme and applaud your effort.

One entry is still beyond the 14-line limit, so I hope the author will address it.  I saw only one spelling error so far and the poet corrected it.

There is still room for 10 additional entries.  

Thanks again!  (There will be a lot of winners because the quality is so good.)
