Valentine’s Day Potpourri

To Dr. Hurley’s Ever-Loving Public:

Dr. Hurley reminds us that one human experience that is never, ever tedious is LOVE. In celebration of St. Valentine’s Day (February 14th, for the non-believers among you), he invites you to share Lovey-Dovey poetry (however earnest or humorous) for a day-long celebration of that exalted state of mind and heart.

Dr. Hurley, ever mindful of the benefits of structure in expressing one’s deepest emotions, invites you to submit poems following unusual, but structured, forms. He particularly invites:

To Submit:

Send (1) your poem with (2) your name as it should appear (3) the person to whom your poem is dedicated (if any) and (4) the form you have chosen to follow to

snakeoilcure [at] gmail [dot] com

no later than February 13th!

As ever, Dr. Hurley thanks you for your assistance in his mission to allay tedium!

He sends his best wishes, and on this rather amorous occasion, love and kisses,

The Editors

on behalf of Dr. Seamus Hurley

  1. How many entries allowed per poet? Also, not that it really matters for such a fun contest, but what does one win? [And finally, in the spirit of things… xoxoxo – Sharanya]

      Ed. EEJ here. Send as many entries as you like, but we will unlikely publish more than two poems from each person. Winner gets glory and a small token from the editors. We generally have a vote for popular winner and choose 1-2 editors’ choice winners. Look forward to seeing what you submit!
