Tea Poetry Contest!

Have you heard about the tea poetry contest that A.C.’s having over on her blog, Tea Time with A.C. Cargill?? If you haven’t, here’s the skinny:

Let your tea poet shine and win tea. Even a few lines will do.

Gotta rhyme
For teatime?
Send it on to me.

Don’t be late.
If it rates,
You’ll win some free tea.

The English Tea Store is furnishing a totally cool prize package for one lucky poet out there. Email your verse to me. I’ll select the winner and the English Tea Store will ship the prize to you.

A few rules:

  • Has to be clearly a poem, not prose.
  • Doesn’t need to rhyme.
  • Can be freestyle or a poetic form (sonnet, haiku, etc.).
  • Content should be about tea and G- or PG-rated (nothing spicy).
  • Maximum lines: 30 (so I don’t need to spend years reading them all).

Other than that, have fun and good luck!

Come on, guys! Submit your tea poem to A.C. today!

    PG Tips, I won’t zip my Lips.

    and the Words will Slip,
    From my Mouse to Your House.
