In this Contest all you have to do is write poetry based on the form given for the current round. The form will change twice a month, on the 1st and the 15th. The winning poem of the last round will be displayed in this forum along with the next prompt.
1. The poem has to be newly created for the round you enter. You may use established characters. Most oriental poetry follows a particular theme. Thus how well those traditions are followed is judged.
2. Deadlines will be midnight WDC the last day of the round.
3.Rating of 13+ or lower, please. Anything higher will be disqualified.
4. Entries should be in bitem or book entry form so that reviews and merit awards can be attached to the poem in the case of a win.
5. Editing is allowed up until the day before the end of the round.
