You will send one blackout poetry ATC to one partner.

Blackout poetry or found poetry is taking text (like from a book page) and obscuring parts so that the remaining words say something new. I recommend googling for examples if you are unfamiliar.

The focus of your ATC needs to be blackout poetry, although embellishments and decoration are encouraged. Otherwise, any media is allowed. You are not obligated to look at your partner's profile before starting your art, or take their preferences into account. This is senders' choice within the theme.

Artist trading cards are 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

New swappers are allowed with filled out profiles. Your profile should have at least three sections filled out, or three+ paragraphs. Message me if you're not sure. I will also make sure you've logged in within a few days of the signup deadline, anyone who appears to be absent may be dropped at my discretion.

I believe no one should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. I will angel if necessary, but I screen participants very carefully to minimize the risk of flakers getting in. I will remove participants with poor ratings, late swaps, drama, nasty comments, or other swapping history that concerns me at my discretion. If you have any negative swapping history and want to participate, please proactively message me to explain. Otherwise, I may ban you with no notice if I am suspicious. And I tend to be suspicious and protective of my swaps. :)

Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name or no last name, you will be asked to fix it.

Hey @Imacraftygirl - it looks like you figured it out, but you can see the partner you send to by clicking on "See the partners you send to" at the top right of a swap page like this one as soon as partners are assigned.
