What to Submit?
1 original, poem on the theme of Romantic.
Only acrostic form is acceptable. Use the word ROMANTIC as the theme word
written down the left side, each letter starting a different line
Use each letter to start the sentence, please see the Forms section if you don't understand. My last acrostic contest I had at least 5 poems that were not acrostic, so please check before sending in a poem that does not conform to the rules, as it will be disqualified and is a waste of time. Obviously this should be a love poem, could be rhyming or free verse, I'm looking for flow from one line to the next, please don't just make a list of things, make it a true acrostic poem. The poem with the best flow and emotion will win!
Thank you and WRITE ME A BEAUTY
