Poetry Contest: Interested?

9 years ago

So, I noticed that Madglee was holding a contest about poetry, and I was totally going to join with one I wrote before that I was really proud of, then I noticed that Madglee's contest only accepted SONNETS, which mine was not. So, looking through some more threads about it, I saw that some other people had poems that were disqualified because of the rules. Which is fine and all, I'm not here to criticize, it's good that Madglee's contest has focus. But I was wondering if anyone was interested in a little unofficial poetry contest, for nothing more than the joy of winning! Basically, there are no rules other than it must be at least three lines long, at most... anything! And any form of poetry goes! So, interested?

I would! I am extremely good at poetry, except for sonnets. In the past two days I've made two lines of poetry. One, because I'm not a rhymer, two because I'm having issues with the syllables.

We are the gray side, we have the best of the other too... But squirrels? I don't know, you'd have to ask the grayman about that.

Poetry Contest: Interested?

Woah, I did not expect that much interest! Woo! This is awesome! Ok rules time!

  1. All entries are sent to me in a PM titled 'Poetry Contest Submission'
  2. Since there are so many different types of poems, make sure to say what kind of poem it is so we can have a first, second, and third from each category (it's not fair to judge something like an Abstract Poem to a Haiku, because they're completely different).
  3. Then just submit your poem, ready to be posted in a thread so everyone can vote on which one is the best!
  4. All entries must be submitted before midnight on the 14th of June EST.

So now that the boring rules are done, it's POETRY TIME! WOOOOOOO!

Would it be better to judge by topic instead of type? A poem can short and sweet or long and interesting but if they are about the same thing you can decide which is better. Just asking cause I don't think judging by what type of poem it is is fair. But hey.  Maybe that's just me. 

Poetry Contest: Interested?

If we are judging different types or subjects of poems does that mean we can submit more then one?

Poetry Contest: Interested?

9 years ago

Ddam. Me and my mistakes! Ok, correction time!

  1. The end submission date is whatever month it is now. Sorry If I got it wrong the first time, my iPod's calander is screwy.
  2. I think the idea of judging it by topic rather than type is good, so we'll go with that.
  3. Yes, you can submit more than one, but you can only submit one on each topic.

There! Corrections done!

What topics would there be?

romance, fantasy, scifi, etc...?

Poetry Contest: Interested?

9 years ago

Yeah, they're all popular ones, but it can actually be about whatever you want. You don't really have to worry about the topic now, I'll sort them into topics AFTER they are all submitted.

Poetry Contest: Interested?

Kay. I think I'm going to put one in soon. Later tonight or tomorrow.

Was it loaded with paper cuts like mine was? I wanted to be sure it made her cry - thus the paper cuts and a squeezing of lemon juice just to be sure.  ;)
