A few housekeeping details -

  • A prompt (randomly drawn from a collection) will be sent out each day, starting March 31, via email. You should receive the prompt no later than 12 noon.
  • Poems should be returned (submitted) via email no later than 12 noon the next day. This will give you 24 hours to complete the day's challenge.
  • You may submit your poems as text in the body of an email (preferred) or as an attachment in MS Word without special formatting. Please no PDFs or image files.
  • Please keep the formatting simple.
  • Please include whatever attribution you would like - authors name, nickname, etc. If you are a student we would appreciate knowing what school you are attending.
  • Poems submitted for publication on the website should (fingers crossed here) be available for viewing by the evening of the day they were submitted.
  • The web address for the published poems will be 3030poetry.com.
  • Submit poems to poems@3030poetry.com.

Thanks for participating.
