    Hello,
    I just want to clarify that even if we don’t make it to the second round of judging we will still be informed via email.

    • Hi Zainab. No, I do not contact every single participant to tell them how far their poem went through the judging rounds. I simply do not have that amount of free time. You have to check the list of finalists when it is published at the end of the month to see if your name is there or not.
