    Announcement ~Poetry Contest -- Themes/Styles Suggestion Thread~

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest' started by theoriginalmonsterman, Oct 2, 2016.

    Have an idea for a theme or style for an upcoming poetry contest? Post it in here, and it may be chosen! Feel free to post as many as you like, but don't spam the thread. If somebody already suggested something don't suggest the exact same thing. It won't increase the chances of it being picked.

    Different Suggestions --

    Worded Theme - Post a word or phrase for the theme.

    Picture Theme - Post an image of any sort with the included artist's name for the theme.

    Poetry Style - Post a type of style for a poetry contest. Examples: Sonnet, Haiku, Ballad, and so on. Please include information on the type of style if it's something that's not too well known. Some different styles will have multiple variations, and if that's the case include the style then do a dash, then write down then specifications of the style. Example: Sonnet - Shakespearean
    DON'T MAKE UP YOUR OWN STYLE! I WILL KNOW! :supermad::supertongue:

    Just curious, how are we defining a sonnet? There are multiple versions with varying structure.

    Are we doing just three quatrains and a couplet? Or are we doing the rhyme scheme and meter of, say, a Shakespearean sonnet?

    Or is all of that up to the person making the suggestion?

    That is a good point. I suppose post the type of style and then include any specifications that may come along with it, so if it's a sonnet post sonnet and then include a dash with the specifications next to it.

    I couldn't find a decent Alien abduction/Space inspired image, so why not a Sim's inspired one....

    The image ones are great.

    This may be weird, but I'm going to suggest my avatar*, which is my favorite image of all time (mainly for sentimental reasons), because I think it has lots of potential for variety:

    *And I promise I won't enter.

    I don't know the photographer as it's a still, but it's from the film The Million Dollar Hotel by Wim Wenders.

    I agree with Selbbin. The avatar appears to have poetic potential.
