Jewel of Darkness  December 16, 2009 - February 13, 2010

Reading and Deliberating


I want Dark/Gothic poetry... exceptional poetic darkness flowing in deepest of scarlet!

*This contest is not for amateur or recreational writers. Only competent writers who are most adept in dark genre will be considered.

*Much of the dark poetry on this site is very clich� � I AM NOT INTERESTED, do not submit anything if your works fall into that category.

*Sad poetry is not dark poetry.

*Do not exceed 350 words.

Finally, poems will be judged by a professional editor, and myself (a published author), only your absolute very best work will do, and even
that may not be good enough.

This competition will be repeated if submissions are inadequate or not of an extremely high standard.

Yes it�s a tough one, but give it a go! Good luck!


Genuine recognition.
