Poetry Error

Whatever could be a poetry error?  I know, bad grammar, meaningless drivel (redundancy), incorrect spelling and any number of syntax or rhyming flaws.

Nope.  That was not my error.  (Well, maybe one of the above)  Apparently my error lies in the fine print and being a newbie to the Postcard Poetry Festival.  I only read the emails I received and there were no restrictions suggested there.  (Besides there is more going on in my life than this minor mishap.)

I did not know there was a Facebook page for Postcard Poetry Festival.  Someone suggested I was a trouble maker.  Don’t think I’ve been called that before.  So, I followed her link, scanned the posts and found this:

The list is final and went out last night. There are 302 poets on the list this year, a near doubling of last year’s 160. Please no online posting of poems you send for a month after sending domestically, longer if being sent out of the country. I’d check with the sender to see if they are cool with you posting the poems they sent you before posting online.

SO, I won’t be posting any more of my daily poems here until … later.

Thanks always for visiting my wordpress blog.
