New Poem Contest

Mon Sep 23, 2013, 7:51 PM

New Contest!

~Poetry~

Before you toss your laptop out the window, go running into the street and pilfer a car�wait!  Just wait!

I know most of you, if not all of my watchers, watch me for my HetaliaXReader.  I want to expand my taste for the written art.  Well, since I enjoy poetry ever so much, I thought now would be an excellent time for a new contest. 


Hopefully, I can find a few groups that will let me add this, so I can get the word out there.  If you know a poetry writer that would like to join, please let them know!  

 

~THEME AND DEADLINE~

Poems: this can include Haiku, Acrostic, Free Verse, Ballad, etc. You're not limited to just these. 

~THEMES~

:bulletpink: Autumn

:bulletblue: Halloween

~DEADLINE~

October 31, 2013 (Who didn't see that coming?)

~RULES~

:bulletwhite: Include at the bottom in the description what type of poem it is. 

:bulletgreen: Spelling and grammar will be judged this time around.

:bulletyellow: It can be anything to do with Autumn or Halloween. 

:bulletblack: Only three entries per person!

:bulletpink: It must be new. 

 

~Prizes~

:bulletyellow: First: A three month premium membership or 636 points

A cake slice and llama.  If I've already given you a llama, another cake slice.

An awesome watch. If I happen to watch you already, 25 extra points. 

You will be featured in my Sunday Journal. 

 

:bulletred: Second: A one month premium membership or 396 points

A cake slice and llama.  If I've already given you a llama, another cake slice.

 

:bulletgreen: Third: 200 points

A cake slice and llama.  If I've already given you a llama, another cake slice.


Comments, questions or concerns? Please note me or comment below.  Please include the finished link at the bottom once you're done!

*If you are 'full' on cake, each slice will be an extra 80 points.  No, you can't substitute the cake for points if you don't want the cake.


Happy writing and good luck!

Could I enter some haikus as a group, or must they all be counted as individual entries? ^w^

I've had at least one haiku entered, so I'm going to have to say individually.

I can do SO MUCH with these prompts. I love it. :love:
Though I do have a question. If it's not clear exactly how the poem relates to the prompts do we need to explain it in the description? I have a wicked idea already forming in my head but I'm not exactly sure if it will explicitly be apparent that these are the themes.

You don't have too, unless you want too.  I mean if it's about fluffy pink bunnies, you might want to let me know why or how you think that has to do with fall or Halloween.  Otherwise, it might leave me scratching my head.   

But anyways, I look forward to reading what you come up with!

It's not very good, but I like it very much! It's the first poem I wrote since last school year.

Absolutely!  I would never make anyone watch me, just to join one of my contests, since I would never do that myself.  

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Have fun and good luck!  :aww:

I love poetry, although, it's kind of embarrassing when my teacher makes me read a poem to the class several times because she likes my poetry.......
