A Note to Poetry Contestants
All welcome to enter this contest, but you have to be willing to send me your postal address so I can snail mail your prize, if you win. I have only hosted one contest before and the prizes reached all the winners, in three different countries, restoring my faith in the postal service :)
Judging is entirely at my discretion though I might recruit a friend or two to help me out if I find the top three hard to decide.
Blitz away and be as cliche as you wish!
