What to Submit?
1 original, poem on the theme of pickle, pickling, being pickled, being in a pickle, or in fact anything pickly.
Any form is acceptable except pickly prose or a pickly acrostic.
No political or religious pickles.
Please use some form of the word 'pickle' within your title, so I don't accidentally read your entry before judging.
Preparing Your Entry
Please don't leave me in the pickle of knowing who you are when I judge. Left align unless it is necessary for the poem. No italics other than for emphasis within the poem. Don't put my name / contest name at the bottom - I can often tell who entrants are just from the way they format this.
Poems should be in English. Poems translated from other languages are not eligible, unless you wrote both the original poem and the translation.
