Payment: No payment.

Tips: The guidelines describe five themes the SCP generally only accepts submissions on.

SCP provides the following tip: "Some type of meter, such as iambic pentameter, is preferred but not absolutely required. An easy way to give your poem some structure is to count the number of syllables per line and make sure they are the same (give or take a syllable)."

How to Submit: Submit by email and include the poetry in the email body or in an attached Word file. Do not submit more than five poems in a single months.
