Securing Quality of Verse

QAP 1.1

1. Title

    Securing quality of verse

2. Description

    This procedure must be done
    for all poems submitted, long or terse,
    before deciding to accept or shun.

3. Purpose

    To spot the poems that will meet
    the standards that we set among ourselves
    ensuring that approved books hit the street
    and all the others never make the shelves.

4. Critical Activities

    4.1 Do not read
    the work of those you do not recognise.

    4.2 You must have lunch with authors, then proceed.

    4.3 If you suspect a message, close your eyes.

    4.4 Remember that art flourishes on greed
    and not on talent.

    4.5 You will only pass
    and approve grants for those who kiss your arse.
