Welcome to The Perfect Sonnet Contest!
ROUND 8 IS NOW OPEN!
I love poetry, and I love sonnets. I could read them all day, every day. So I'm on a search for the best of the best here at WDC for the best sonnets you can write.
Theme: Seasons Spring. May include sonnets pertaining to Easter, as well as the birth of anything. Take liberty with this theme and stretch your imagination!
Type of sonnet: Any sonnet will be accepted this round.
Quantity: One (1) sonnet must be written by the deadline.
Submissions can be old or new, but only sonnets that haven't won an awardicon already may be submitted to this contest. Please note that entries to the NaPoWriMo activity will also be accepted here, as long as it's a sonnet and fits the theme in some way.
Once you submit your item, do not edit it. I might read it before the deadline to get a head start.
Please post your entry into your message in bitem or book entry format. If you need help with that, please e-mail me. Also, let me know what type of sonnets they are in the body of your static item, and you MUST include a detailed description of how to write that particular sonnet at the bottom of your sonnet within the static item.
The deadline is April 30, 2014 at 11:59 pm WDC time (also my birthday!)
1st PLACE: 10K AWARDICON, SEASONS SPRING MERIT BADGE AND 1,000 GIFT POINTS
2nd PLACE: 10K AWARDICON AND SEASONS SPRING MERIT BADGE
3rd PLACE: 10K AWARDICON
Bonus prizes may be awarded at the judge's discretion.
Anyone who wishes to donate 20,000 or more gift points to this contest will receive a merit badge from me.
