JUNE 2013 IBPC Poem Submissions
Interboard Poetry Competition

Please post your submission for the IBPC (Interboard Poetry Community) Competition. The IBPC is an international monthly poetry competition between an elite group of poetry boards/forums around the world. Submissions for June will be accepted here until May 30th at 8 p.m. est.  The post will then be locked and no more poems will be accepted for June's competition.  If you have a poem to submit after the post is locked, please wait and submit it for the following month. 

Limit One Poem Per Poet.

IBPC competition regulations allow the submission of only one poem per poet, per monthly competition. This means that if you have entered a poem elsewhere, you may not enter it, or a different poem, here.  It causes confusion, extra work for the judges, and can delay the winning announcement.

Before entering be sure to check out the current judge, Linda Sue Grimes, to get a feel for the type of poems she likes.  It will help you to create this month's poem. About every 3 months the judges change.  They are usually publishers and editors of literature magazines on and off line.

Why don't you submit your poem in the Poetic AX for a little tweaking and polishing?

By submitting your poem here, you give your consent for the Tin Roof Alley to submit your poem to the IBPC Competition. Click "Reply" to enter your poem.

In search of You

Inside your insides
where you beat
in time
with your heart
concealed
and vulnerable
unprotected
between organs
bone and flesh
the spark of fire
that is you
resides
singularly individual.
