Well, it does, but this group doesn't have to. Can this be retooled into a group full of love stories and poems (where by "love" I mean whatever you think I mean)?
Dear Lynn, because this group is made special for the Valentine period, each year, makes the group special. So for that reason, "the specialness", I'm going to conclude the group today.
But you can start a Love Group as you have suggested.
Next year we'll do the 4th consecutive Valentine Day/Week group again.
Our first year we gave away gorgeous chapbooks (published by Gloria Mindock's Cervena Barva Press) that included the work of every participant (we only had about 24 that year).
This year we will give away Meg's new chapbook to the Winner!!! Stay tuned for that announcement!
Didn't know the glorious history, Susan. :)
Lynn, there is a group in place here called the Hopeless Romantic which is led by Judith Lawrence, you could segue into that group.

Stories & Poems for Valentine Day and the Valentine Week~
VALENTINE WEEK CONTEST!!!
A *SECRET NUMERICAL EQUATION* (that will be posted after the winner is announced) (that will prove definitively that random is random) will be our way of choosing our winner. The "winner" will receive a gift of Meg Tuite's Fabulous New Chapbook "Disparate Pathos" just published by Monkey Puzzle Press!!!
Meg will personally inscribe her chapbook and she'll also write you a wild little love poem!
How is that for a lot of Valentine Love!
