Thanks for SLAMMING, this contest has finished




You've missed them, you know you have! With the End of The World upon us (thank you Mayan calendar!) I've chosen this name instead of bringing back my old Bad To The Bone. It's also an homage to an old funny site.

Bad Poetry isn't just tripe spilled on a page or screen, in other words, bluntly put, crap isn't bad poetry it is just crap. The goal here is to write sublimely bad poetry, following a prompt that can be an image or text, sometimes with a sample or not. In addition to the prompt will be a poetry form which specifies the exact poetry form your entry must follow.

What is a SLAM?


A SLAM! is fast-paced poetry contest done either online or in real life. A bad poetry SLAM! is both fast paced and mind-numbing! If your brain turns to jelly and your eyes fall out then my work here is done!

The first prompt will get posted and you will have 24 hours to post your poem. This prompt will get posted on December 10th at Noon EST/-5 GMT! Each round thereafter will specifically state the time limit on that round. The Judge will post a ROUND CLOSED entry, and another judge will post the next prompt Judges decisions are final for their round.

What are the rules?

Read the prompt carefully: make sure you understand the poetry form required. Your entry in each round must follow the poetry form and be cogent to the prompt.

Your entry must be posted before the deadline of each round.

Please enter by clicking REPLY to the judge's prompt!

The text of the poem you write must be pasted into your entry post.

If you want a review of your entry post a b-item} link.

If you have questions post them at "One Awful Green Room"   by Pita , which is this contest's official "green room." That forum is where we chat and laugh and joke. This forum is the stage, and only prompts and entries are allowed, everything else will get deleted.

There is no specific requirement for membership, any case color and membership level may participate. If you want the poem rated include a Bitem link. If you have no port space feel free to post directly here with no link. We do not require you make a static item. If you post on stage (ie no link) you must observe this forum's content rating and it must stay between E and 18+.

The SLAM is free to enter and no donations of any type are required.

You may edit until the prompt's deadline is reached. Any edit after that time disqualifies the entry.

Who are the judges?

Katya the Poem-a-Day Poet , Sophy and me.

What are the Prizes?

The prize pot is currently 155k gps. But that doesn't matter, what matters is winning imperishable infamy and glory of making everyone who reads your words need Prozac!
