We are offering a chance to enter the Vallum Award for Poetry 2015 contest for FREE! The catch is you have to be the first person to guess the title and author of the secret poem.

How it works:

Every week we will add one letter and give a clue to help solve the poem. Once you think you know the title and the author, email the answer to info@vallummag.com. Be careful, you only get one guess, so use it wisely! The secret poem will be revealed one week before the contest deadline.

WEEK 3

Clue: Not every poet performs with the Provincetown Players, pens “Parturition”, and gets paid by a prosperous Peggy for pushing paper pieces and painted posies in Paris, but this one does.
Letter of the Week: P
