*NoteP* Poems must also be posted in both member's ports. (If you win an award, we need to be able to award both members). Poems in your ports must match exactly!

*NoteP* Reviews of all poems will be done by the judges after the Grand Prize Winners have been chosen. Once the challenge is over, PLEASE DO NOT EDIT YOUR POEMS until you have received your review.

Example of a Properly Formatted Static Item Entry

IF you write every other stanza in your poem rather than a block of lines, then you can use colors to show the stanzas each of you writes.
