    Are we able to vote 1 point each to any poems we like or do we just pick 1 poem? Apologies new to this process. Excited to be a part of this wonderful group. Good luck everyone.

      Hi there. You have a seven day period to (hopefully) read all the submitted poems. After that, you are afforded one vote for a single poem out of the 150. The winner will be announced on the eighth day.

      I’m sure you’ll find, as most of us do, that after having ‘pinned’ several poems it is very difficult to narrow down your vote to one poem. Good luck!!

    How do you get to read the submitted poems? I clicked on the name of the poem with the little box, and nothing happened. Or we cannot read them until after the voting? Thanks for any info it would be greatly appreciated!

      Right, the contest entries will be available for reading once the voting phase kicks off in 4 days. You'll receive an email notification when this happens. Best of luck with the contest!

    Best wishes to my fellow literary creative artists nominated to compete in the March 2024 Contest. Nominees willingly inviting colleagues to critique and rate their poetry is a commendable quality. It is an expression of confidence and commitment to practice and share their craft. Good Luck to all!
