Writer Cafe's Next Top Poet March 8, 2012 - March 8, 2012
Ongoing contest with rankings, enter a poem every 1-2 days. Minimum 35 submissions.
Submit a poem now while it's early, it might get hard to score in a month if contestants grow as I predict.
What kind of poems will rank?
- original explorations of common themes
- bonus points for erotic or spiritual verse
- a good vocabulary
- unexpected endings
- rhyming or decent haiku
- self-important and highly stylized verse
- it must be readable, not too long
- clear, melodic and lyrical
- not too emo or brooding to the point of sounding immature
- bonus points for nature poetry
- bonus points for social-activism themes
* Do please avoid putting a poem you already put into the rankings.
* Do please avoid signing your name, this is very distracting and is not fair to the anonymity of the contest.
oh and thanks!
