  1. The painting has so much to say; I guess I won't be able to compile it all in one single entry.

  2. Inspiring Painting.. I would love to write one, or may be more.. Let's see..

  3. Just two questions:
    1)Should the poems be attached to email in some format?
    2)For multiple submissions,do we need to send each poem in a different mail, or one email is enough?

    1. Dear Rupam,

      1) Poems can be attached as a Word doc and sent to us.
