    • Hi Heather.

      No – there’s no word limit. The poem or story must rhyme and must be suitable for children – they’re the only requirements.

      Yes – you can pay via PayPal. I’ll email you an invoice.

      Thanks and happy writing!

  2. To answer Heather’s question – you many send in as many entries as you like so long as you’re happy to pay the $5 entry fee each time.

    • Hi Katrina, winners will be announced via email and posted on this blog. I will also list winners in the first issue of PASS IT ON in the New Year.
