March - May 2010
Challenge for Spring 2010:
This contest will run from March 20th - May 29th. That's ten weeks!
All forms will come from "Poetry Forms" [13+] or any made up forms I can find on WDC. Each week, there will be three forms displayed: Hard, medium, and easy.
Rules For This Challenge:
A book or folder item is needed for this challenge. A book item might be the easier option for the contestants, but either will work.
Items must be newly written, a poem, and must follow one of the forms listed for the week. You *must* say what form it is either in the message post or entry.
You need to submit your poem of the week in before Friday at midnight (WDC/EST time.) In either bitem or entry format.
Each week will run from Saturday to Friday.
You may manipulate the form, but you can't stray too far away from it. In my poem "Pieces of Me" , I use the form Jánakú, but instead of having it go one word, two words, three words, I have it going three words, two words, one word.
Any rating is allowed.
You are allowed to miss one prompt, but not the first or the last.
The maximum of people allowed is 20!
