How To Participate

The goal of Instapoem is to help free up your inner poet. The 5 minute limit keeps you from agonizing over being perfect. 

Post your poem or link to your poem in the Comments section of the post for that particular prompt. See our About page for more info.

After you post your comment, be sure to fill out the CAPTCHA prompt (challenge-response test meant to weed out spammers), else your comment won't be posted.

Please do not copy or distribute poems (or images) without permission. Copyright always remains with the author.

If you have any questions, please do ask!
