Weekly Poetry Contest One Hundred and Seventy Six Pens at the ready! The Rules All entries must be on the set theme. Only one entry per member. No editing of entries once posted without my express permission (i.e. PM me and ask). Poems must be titled Entries must not have previously posted on the forums, and are not permitted to be posted for critique until AFTER the contest is completed. Any violation of these rules will result in disqualification of entries, and possibly infraction. The entry stage will be open for fourteen days, closing on Monday 2nd January 2012. The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 5th January 2012. (You may have noticed that this is a longer entry period than usual. The reason for this is that I have absolutely no intention of opening up a voting thread between Christmas and New Years) And this week's theme is: (courtesy of MrMormon) Pure Wonder The next (17th) contest's theme will be (courtesy of me): Looking Forward, and it will be opened on Monday 2nd January 2012. Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing. Banzai PS: If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. I don't bite (much).
