ENTRY LIST




In recognition of the U.S. elections coming up on Tuesday, November 6th (and because we haven't done a poetry round in a while)...

Genre Prompt for November 2018:

Political Poetry


The task is simple: Write a poem using the prompt above as inspiration!

And while you're at it, if you're able to vote here in the U.S. ... don't forget to head to ballot box on Tuesday 11/6! You can check out sites like Vote411  , VoteSmart  , and Rock the Vote   (or search for your state's Secretary of State website) for nonpartisan voter information about the candidates and ballot initiatives in your area.


*NoteY* Your entry must be:

*Bullet* Poetry (any form is acceptable, free verse included). Please include the form you've chosen in the body of your item.
*Bullet* Please remember that politics can be a very divisive issue and that people (judges included!) may have very different opinions than your own. Be incendiary, provocative, or offensive at your own risk.
*Bullet* Based on the prompt above. The featured genre should be prominent, but need not be the primary or only genre used.
*Bullet* Rated 18+ or lower. Graphic content is not permitted, including GC or XGC items.
*Bullet* 100 lines or less. A line count must be included in the body of your item (top or bottom, not in the intro/header).
*Bullet* Newly written for this contest. Create your entry as a Static Item and keep it in your portfolio. Submit it using the survey form below.
*Bullet* Submitted One Time Only. You may only submit one entry, so make it a good one!
*Bullet* Edited Only Until the Deadline. Entries edited after the submission deadline may be disqualified from winning without notice.
