Weekly Poetry Contest Two Hundred and Twenty One If you want to make a good start to your writing year, the poetry contest is always a good place to start. 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 six days, closing on Monday 14th January 2013. The voting stage will begin immediately -- provided, of course, we're still here -- and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 17th January 2013. And this week's theme is: (courtesy of Timewalker) Nothingness The next (221st) contest's theme will be (courtesy of me): New Leaves and it will be opened on Monday 14th January 2013. 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).
