The love poems contest is a free monthly poetry contest which consist of selecting at at the beginning of every month, one Love Poem and one Love Quote (from the entries received during the previous month) and add them to our website. We will include a link to the winning poem and quote on our Home Page as well as in our monthly newsletter.
Before submit your poems to the contest, please take note of the following contest guidelines/rules.
Poetry Contest Theme:
The theme of the poems needs to be related to love and romantic poetry.
What NOT To Submit:
Please do NOT submit poems or quotes dealing with lost love, breaking up, depression, regret, impossible love, etc. These topics are beyond the scope of this site. Please do NOT submit poems or quotes that are cynical, bitter, or negative, that have nothing to do with love, or that have no romantic or sentimental undertone. If someone won't "feel good" after reading your poem or quote, it does not fit into our collection. Please do NOT submit poems or quotes that are highly abstract or surreal. We prefer poems and quotes that can be appreciated and understood by all ages. Lastly, please do NOT submit poems or quotes that make reference to sex or making love. This subject is not suitable for our younger readers.
Please Spell Check:
We welcome submissions from all countries and all ages, however, proper spelling and grammar are required. Entries with multiple spelling or grammatical errors will be ignored.
One Entry Per Person Per Month:
We receive a great number of entries every month. You are welcome to send a new poem or quote every month, but please do NOT enter more than once during the same month.
