Because rhyme doesn’t pay.

Rhymer Signature

Features title

         Every month, five stories with ties to the rainbow will be chosen from around WDC. At the end of every month, a poll will be taken to decide a winner of those five. Each story will be paid 2,000 GPs. The winner will receive the Gay and Lesbian community merit badge and will be the featured writer of The Readerie the following month.
