  1. I inadvertently submitted 3 poems as a regular submission which I had intended to enter
    in the poetry contest. Is there any way to correct this? Thanks.

    • Peter,

      I went ahead and removed your poems from our regular submissions. You will need to resubmit them through the contest link on submishmash.

      Thanks for your interest!
