    1. Hello Frank,
      Of course the rights on the poems are with the poet! I ask the poets to send me an email with the poem, a picture and a link to a social media account or website of the poet and link them when I publish the poems.
      Previously published poems are accepted, of course, provided they have the Halloween theme.

  2. Hello Jean, thank you for the opportunity. I have just sent my poem… I may have sent it twice after I typed the address incorrectly. *whispers* my computer maybe Infested with spooks and goblins, well that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it … probably with ectoplasmic strength!
