You're welcome, PR. There were some good choices. You are allowed to pick more than one in the poll.  We opened it up so each participant could pick one male and one female.

Thanks as always for supporting the Classic Corner. <3

Probably not then. I don't know. I thought I had put that in the description.  I need to double-check.

I voted for one male, one female, and it seemed to register them both o.k.

We didn't have an issue either, Josh. I think historically we've only allowed one vote, and that was the issue. Entrants will adjust better the next time around.  Thanks for your vote(s)!

Are the poems to be written as if the poet were alive today, or only relating to their own era?

The poems are to be written as an inspirational piece by one of the tribute poet's poems. How you write that is completely up to you, as long as you list the inspirational poem. It is advised that you study the poet's style and forms; however, it's the essence we pay the most attention to.

You should be an 'Old Hat' to this by now, Josh!  Being you've won several!

Thanks you for the clarification  {Sometimes 'Old Hats' get a bit weathered at the edges and lose the plot    }
