A bi-weekly contest that challenges traditional norms and puts creativity to the test.
Welcome to CJ's Twisted Traditional Poetry Contest.
ROUND 6 RUNS FROM 12:01 am September 1st, 2018 TO 11:59 pm September 30th, 2018. WDC TIME
To explain this contest simply, it is a contest based on traditional poetry forms, with a twist.
It will be run monthly, and will be based on a prompt given by me. I will present a traditional poetry form to be followed, plus a twist relating to that form.
A few examples:
Write a Haiku, but reverse the syllable structure. Instead of 5/7/5, it must be written 7/5/7.
Write a Sonnet, but cut the syllable count per line in half. Instead of 10 syllables per line you can only have 5.
Write a quatrain, but make the first word of each line follow the rhyme structure, not the last.
Or anything else my twisted mind can come up with.
ROUND 6 PROMPT
Write a poem that rhymes.
Each line must start with a different letter of the alphabet consecutively.
Good luck. I look forward to reading your entries.
All poems must be written new for this contest.
Entries must be submitted in "B-item" or “entry” format. For information on how to do this, go here;
WritingML Help for b-item
Prompt must be included in the submitted work. (Top, bottom, doesn't matter to me.)
Contest will run for a two week period from 12:01 AM WDC on the Monday of the first week, to 11:59 PM WDC on the Sunday of the following week.
Entries will be judged based on ability to follow the prompt as well as creativity.
