Wise Words
When you are describing,

A shape, or sound, or tint;

Don't state the matter plainly,

But put it in a hint;

And learn to look at all things,

With a sort of mental squint.

~Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll)

PostSubject: Poetry Contest   Mon Jun 28, 2010 10:52 am

This is a contest for the best poem! ;D

Submit a poem about whatever you want. =]
You can express your feelings towards the world, show us something that happened to you or simply write about anything you find interesting...but most importantly, have fun! xD


I will be the judge and I accept two volunteers to be judges as well. :3
Poetry is related to emotions and beauty, but those are relative, so it depends on people's tastes. I can love a poem because it transmits me good feelings, but you can prefer other poem because you identify yourself with it... That's why I want three judges, so that the contest is fairer. ^^

Judges:
Midori
Stainqueen
Shiny Star

The winner gets bragging rights! 8D

So let the magic begin! <3

So should anyone who wants to enter post their work here or just send a private message to all three judges?

Ummm..... we don't have so many members, so if three of them are judges, who is going to post a poem? Maybe we should think about recruiting more members before we have contests?


Also, to avoid bias and potential plagiarizing, how about having the members send the poems in a message to the judges? After the deadline and the judges have selected the winners, the poems can be posted (by the head judge (and using spoilers) as a reply to this thread, and a link to that post can be provided in the first post. Or they can be edited into the first post..

I created a facebook group before, not many people joined... Guess we'll just have to advertise to people?

No, not a group, I was thinking a page that people can see, like, and then it pops up in the news feed for all of their friends.

Ohh... but I doubt many people would be interested. I've posted about Writer's Circle on my newsfeed before..

yes, but I (like some people) don't read statuses as much since my news feed is covered with the pages that people "like"
