Weekly Poetry Contest One Hundred and Eighty Nine We appear to be a day late... Sorry about that. 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. I'm going to be away and very busy over the Easter period, so this contest is going to be open for double the usual time. So the entry stage will be open for six days, closing on Monday 23rd April 2012. The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 26th April 2012. And this week's theme is: (courtesy of Soulfighter-123) Loneliness The next (190th) contest's theme will be (courtesy of Dullener): Different Stories, and it will be opened on Monday 23rd April 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).
