Poetry Contest Writing Thingie

I’ve given this a lot of thought, and I want to start a poetry writing prompt contest thing on my site.

Yes, here.

Yes, I still intend to randomly have a caption contest as well. -In fact, I had intended for that one to be monthly or quarterly, but got a bit sidetracked in keeping my children alive over the summer.

On to the poetry:

Every week, I will announce a topic and parameters. People may enter by posting their entire poem in the comments, or a post-specific link. I will read through the entries and pick my favorite. Said favorite is the winner and gets his/her post listing his/her poem and announcing that he or she is The Grand Poet Master of the Week.

The best part?

This will always be a contest for the very worst poetry you can write. *Ahem* And G-Rated. I’m not gonna want to tread through some of my reader’s minds (you know who you are)….

So…. Every Saturday at 8 a.m. MST (UTC-7, though UTC-6 during Daylight Savings), I will post the rules and prompt. Every Friday of the following week at 8 a.m. I will announce who won. You’ll have that week to write something.

Are you game? I am. Tune in tomorrow and let’s have some fun!

    Interesting. I’m not a poet, so I probably won’t be submitting anything… but one never knows.

        Hobbo, you won her first prize!
        You’re becoming a bit of a thinker
        Though, that was a lovely surprise
        Chel’s next challenge, could be a stinker
