Ten lines or less  January 20, 2007 - February 10, 2007


No more than twelve lines

No more than two poems submitted per participant so chose your best.

No profanity - keep it clean

Poetry only, any style accepted

Please use grammar and punctuation where appropriate.

Avoid cliches and topics that have been overwritten (love, heartache, breakups, pain, loss, blah, blah, blah) unless you have a distinctly revolutionary point of view. I'm looking for uniqueness.

I'm looking for peices that reflect editing and deliberate, unique wording (trim the fat) but that still have depth and meaning (or humor)

Have fun and good luck.
