August Acrostics August 10, 2008 - September 10, 2008
Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same
words as in the title.
In the same manner, the last letter of every line can spell out the tile as well. More complicated "double acrostics" spell words out with the beginning and ending letters.
This contest will be judged strongly in presentation and complexity. The easier it is to read the Acrostic in the poem, the better the chance of the poem placing. Aligning the text so all the letters line up is the best way to make your acrostic clear. In additon, mixing forms such as minute poetry and acrostic may add to the complexity of the piece; but the minute part will be largly ignored with emphasis being placed on acrostics.
