International swap, open to newbies, who have a complete and well-thought- out profile.

The first time I was in this swap, in 2007, when it was hosted by a dear friend, who Is no longer in swap-bot. I've seen lots of variations of if over the years, but I am returning to the simple.

You will have two partners, (that means you will get two ratings.)

You will send each one of them a postcard, with a stanza, or a few lines of a poem that has touched your life in some way.

Please credit the author, unless you've written it yourself.

Do not put your postcard in an envelope to mail. These are to be addressed, to your partner, with a stamp attached and then mailed.

It is VERY important that you write, maybe along the margins, your own name, the name of the swap, and the date you are mailing it. Be sure to also click the SENT button on this page, so you won't get marked down, just because the postal serice might be slow.

Please use a picture postcard. (Sender's choice!)

I hope you have FUN with these!

Any questions, or concerns, please just ask, or message me.

Is there a ratings requirement on this for the established members?

gramsbuttonbox 09/ 5/2015 #

No, there is none. I never start a project, NOT trusting people. If someone flakes, THEN they have damaged my trust. I will always angel my swaps if necessary.

Okay Thankyou for letting me know. Thats a positive attitude you have, I think that's a wonderful way to think of others. :) It's on my watch list. I wondered if quality handmade postcards are allowed? I like to make the postcard so that it compliments the poem I choose.

You can certainly make a postcard, and what a lovely idea, that it would compliment the poem! Good luck, I hope you will join us!

Are song lyrics also acceptable? Some people view music as poetry, others do not.

Very much so...I can think of some, right now! Be sure to please credit the author...
