Contest Completed


First place (will be featured on my blog!) - Mary, Mary, How Does Your Garden Grow?
Second place - The Dance With Death
Third place - Lovelorn.


I love free verse as much as anyone else; it's the primary thing I write! But I think there is something very rewarding and challenging about formal poetry which we lose when we take off all the boundaries. As Robert Frost once said, "Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down."

So, send me your best formal poetry. It doesn't matter what the form is; whether it be a sonnet or a haiku, an epic or a limerick, or anything in between, I want to see them! The first place winner will be featured on my blog, Good luck!
