  4. Are we allowed to submit poems that deal with issues generally, or do they need to match something specifically?

  7. Jessica - If it's a topical issue that can be loosely linked to an event/issue in the news, that would be good. This way, we maintain the news-related tone of the blog.

    Nana Jo - Many thanks. We look forward to receiving contributions, any time.

    Friko - Thank you. Clare and I are really pleased with the way things have gone today. Are you thinking of offering something?

  15. I'll be reading, primarily because Mark Kerstetter gave you a thumbs-up. I'm glad to see others joining me in the News Poem telos. If you're curious, you can go to Toylit at blogspot. I've been at it every day since Jan 22, 2010. Let me know if I can help you.

  26. Silly question, but is it possible for you to post your e-mail or give it to me from my comment section? I'd love to contribute to Poetry24.

    I am having trouble getting to you. I'm quite inept at modern technology.
