Poetry Contest: The Rose&Thorn

Postby wyndham » Sun Jan 16, 2005 8:23 pm

Hi All,

I'm a fiction writer, not a poet, so I'm not familiar with this forum. Forgive me if this is not the correct place, but I did want to let you all know about this contest, because it is a great opportunity for newer writers. I hope these links come out, because I had to do a copy and paste so I wouldn't miss anything.
