HEAR YE! HEAR YE!
By your entry, help define and judge a new category/form of poetry to be henceforth called "Chinese Take-out." For the only known example of this poetic form please review "Legend's Brilliant Glow" [http://www.writerscafe.org/writing/ufoauthor/1023623/] and all associated reviews and commentary.

3.) Entrants may vote for themselves or someone else that has submitted an entry in the currently active contest (if the system permits this).
4.) The originator of a "Chinese Take-out" contest must abstain from entry and must announce a winner (or lack thereof) within 24 hours of the contest deadline.
5.) Changes to rules, if necessary (to preserve sanity or decorum) will be proposed and enacted by simple majority vote of previous contest winners (or those that may care enough to virtually travel and participate in such congress).
