Are you ready to CHALLENGE yourself with new poetry forms and writing lyrics??
WELCOME TO RHYTHM & RHYME CHALLENGE


The Header for the Rhythm & Rhyme Poetry/Lyric Challenge




Do you LOVE a poem with a "sing-song" flow, or perhaps even a strict meter? Are some of your favorite songs those that include rhyme? Whether you are new to writing poetry or song lyrics or you've been writing them for years, this challenge is designed to expose you to new poetry forms and devices as well as new methods of songwriting that create a smooth and catchy tune.

Each event lasts only 5 days, with a new prompt each day. There is a daily prize as well as larger prizes for the winners of the event. However, because this is a challenge, there are quite a few rules in place and all are important. Please read through the below rules carefully and if you are interested in participating in the next event, post in the forum below!


Let's get ready to WRITE!

As this is an intense challenge,
it does require quite a few GPs to run even with the current prizes.

I would love to be able to increase prizes for challengers
and I can do that with your help!
