  1. A commendable Venture. I will surely send my entries ASAP. I understand the entries are to be sent in 3 files. 1. Only poems WITHOUT NAME OF THE POETESS. 2. Age proof. 3. Complete contact information. I hope that is what is expected?

  2. I have submitted my entry for rayaprol poetry competition, but would like to confirm a few things.
    i have sent my entry of three poems in single word doc as suggested, but contact and age proof are seperate documents attached in the same email.
    kindly let me know if that is acceptable or if i have to resend my entry.Anit
