A Note to Poetry Contestants
All previous winners who have won a book in one of my contests who wish to participate in this contest or any future contests are free to do so, but in fairness to all, your poem will not be eligible for another book. (One book per author) and you cannot asign your prize to another poet, however you can choose which of your winning poems you'd like to have printed in my new book. (ONE POEM PER AUTHOR).
