Valentine’s Poetry Writer’s Challenge


Calling all poets!!!

I had such a great time with this last Writer’s Challenge, that David and I have decided to host another one for Valentines Day.

2) The poem doesn’t have to be romantic. It can be horrifying, depressing, loving.. anything! 🙂 As long as it’s a poem, it’s acceptable.

3) Editing: you are responsible for any editing and/or proofreading for your entry. David and I have a lot to do on with our jobs that we don’t have time to edit each and every entry. 🙂
