Judges


Warped Sanity

If you would like to help me judge this contest, let me know.



Prompt 1



Pen a poem which centers around a controversial topic. Since these days any topic which deviates from what someone else might believe becomes a trigger, this leaves the prompt wide open. You are welcome to write about anything from anti-feminism, feminism, abortion, anti-abortion, politics, to Covid vaccines. The list is endless. Just remember, I do not judge on whether I agree with the writer or not. Judging is based on poetic language, structure, and emotiveness.


Prompt 2







Prompt 3


Pen a poem based on the following quote by Tom Waits:

"Reality is for people who can't face drugs."
