Readers are invited to submit a poem that uses all the following words. These sixteen words have been randomly selected. This list poses a challenge because some of the words can have more than one meaning. The word masks, for example, can serve as a noun or as a verb.
The poem must be at least 12 lines in length and must not exceed 30 lines. Some of the words may be used in the title.
The contest is for all ages. Students are especially encouraged to submit poems. This is an opportunity to built your publications list. Submit your entries by midnight November 30 to Editor: firstname.lastname@example.org
The top 3 poems will appear at One on One: Write and Publish! (formerly Students, Publish Here!) the first week of December.
