Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem on the theme of BITTERSWEET. I am looking for a poem any form, consisting a maximum of 12 lines only, each line between 9-13 syllables long. The poem should have a rhyme, any pattern. As an example please read my poem entitled, POOR CIRCUS CLOWN. This poem has humour but has a sad undertone. Whilst my story is fiction, I suspect it could also be true. I look forward to reading your entries regards, Kevin
