Oh, man.

I completely misunderstood what this contest was all about. Greeting cards....

Too bad I realized that after submitting a really dark poem about failing relationships.

Haha, not exactly what you'd pick up at Wal-greens for someone.

That's embarassing.

Did you read the previous winning poems, rami? They aren't your typical greeting cards. Does your poem have any glimpse of hope at the end? If so, it might be fine. JMHO.

Hi rami--

Good poem, but not greeting card material.

Also, another reason Share Your Work is a good place to post and not here, is that SYW is password protected. It won't appear on search engines, therefore not considered published.

Ooooooooh. I didn't realize that was what the whole thing was about. I didn't realize that could make it considered "published." Go figure, ya learn something new everyday.

And yes, most certainly not...... but thank you.

Thanks. I've sent one in.

Hello writers,

They haven't posted winners, yet. The submission acceptance email said winners would be notified within 45 days of the June 30th deadline . . .
