The Safalta Award aspires to be an official recognition of true poetic quality in our community. Safalta means success in Hindi-Sanskrit. This will be a contest held every weekend, with accumulative points, as in an on-going tournament of poets. This is an opportunity to pick your best piece of poetry each week.

Rankings
There are placing from 1-10 & points are accumulated and rankings are placed on my profile on a weekly basis. So a 1st prize would score you 10 points, 2nd place = 9 points, and so forth…. If you want to place well in the Tournament, submitting a quality poem each week would be key. What does this bring you as a writer? Exposure to your writing & a sense of quality competition. If these things do not appeal to you, the tournament may not be for you.

If we have too many contestants at a certain point, it will be moved to vote, since I can only judge objectively a certain # of entries. I hope to attract the best poets from this community. Feel free to give me feedback on my idea.

Good luck to all participants,

SN

Bio:

I'm a high volume poet that enjoys the interactivity of this supportive environment. I make an effort to review new poets and reciprocate reviews as much as possible.

I try to write every day, as it brings me joy. This community is very friendly and is currently fostering a lot of new talent. I like to call it the facebook of poetry.

Compassion and growth through our literary adventures to everyone.

And hey, I really hope you appreciate classic music. I am currently obsessed with Beethoven and Bach.

If you have time, read this: http://www.writerscafe.org/writing/DineshThePoet/1085540/

Never knew music was so influential- beyond ethereal.

I don't rhyme anymore, not because I think it's inferior. On the contrary, I think I've been doing it not-so-right the whole time. I still use end-stop rhymes for emphasis sometimes.

Ah well, I don't rhyme anymore. That's pretty much the only change.

Hey, posting a link around in case it is of interest -

http://www.writerscafe.org/contests/How-good-a-writer-are-you%3F/45162/

People joining writerscafe to basically use it as a social networking site have really taken the buzz out of it lately, so I decided to try and get some dialogue going about actual writing and hopefully expose some really talented people in the process.

yes, for some reason im very perplexed with music's uniqueness...everything has some sort of scent. right? music must be the only thing that we cant identify, but in that case we can invent our own perfume of music. your reviews are always so thoughtful and i need that extra push every once in awhile because when i get discouraged sometimes i consider giving up my slight ability to express emotion through poetry....thanks for your kind encouragement. happy holidays!
