Please read the submission instructions for our Love Poems for Her (That Special Romantic Interest) Poetry Contest.

We are only accepting NEWLY WRITTEN poems posted after July 1, 2019. Many of you have submitted older poems. If you have submitted an older poem, it will not be read and will not be eligible for the contest. 

Please remove your old poem from the contest and submit a newly written poem, posted after July 1, 2019, to be eligible. Thanks.

Straying a bit off topic, I know, but I wonder if your contest will be followed by one called, "Love Poems for Him?" All the best ... CayCay

Seems you are experiencing many of the issues contest judges have experienced for quite some time, so frustrating, but what I find worse than old poems(and I like your new addition on the contest page for that) are poems that have nothing to do with my contest, except perhaps written in the same form, and even that is questionable!

Thanks for hosting TPS and as an aside I would be more amazed if every entry always followed directions - never happened with me.
