No politics. No religion. It's all about the music, people! So keep it clean, polite, and be sure to read our Community Guidelines before posting in the forum.
Trust me when I say there are some extremely talented and prolific writers on PoetrySoup. Since I'm always on the hunt for good lyrics, I started a little contest. Check it out:
The response has been amazing. I received 26 submissions in one day. So, based on the response, I will probably increase the maximum number of allowed submissions.
The winner will have his or her poem put to music and I will sing the words as if they were my own. Get ready. This is going to be epic!

Ryan, that is a wonderful idea! It looks like the community over there is loving the idea too. I'm sure the final product is going to be amazing! I'll be watching so please keep us posted!
Are you going to pick the winner, or will people be voting?

Thanks Drew! PoetrySoup is a huge community. Currently, there are 29,620 poets who have contributed 572,723 poems. Personally, I would prefer to read through a writer's portfolio without them knowing and then reach out to them if something grabbed my attention. The thought of opening up the flood gates and potentially being slammed by a tsunami of requests scares the @#$%&* out of me! I realize that probably would never happen - at least not to me, but even the remote possibility makes me skittish. On the other hand, if they were willing to pay a fee... ;)
