Layton Poetry Tournament V  September 11, 2012 - September 20, 2012

Reading and Deliberating


Please DO NOT submit repeat entries, I read every piece so I don't want to read them again. I want to read fresh new poems.

I'm going back to deciding winners, not enough people vote.

Here's to trying to break our record of # of participants. (71) 73 people came last time.

10 points for winner, 9 points for 2nd, etc...

You may enter 2 of your best pieces, I will select the 10 finalists and then the audience votes for the best.

Accumulated rankings take place in terms of points and # of votes.

Some hints:

1. originality
2. no perverse sentiments
3. no names of author included (will not be accepted)
4. unusual topics welcome
5. erotic and spiritual verse especially welcome
6. holds reader's attention
7. not too long
8. original title is important


10 points 10 points
9 points 9 points
8 points 8 points
7 points 7 points
6 points 6 points
5 points 5 points
4 points 4 points
3 points 3 points
2 points 2 points
1 point 1 point
