Write a Poem of Length

Poetry Contest
I have grown weary of very brief poems, and line limits by various websites for poems submitted in contests. For this contest, write a poem of 60-160 lines. Foot length of all lines must be at least 6 syllables. Must rhyme. You choose the rhyme and the story you wish to tell. This contest is not looking for 60+ lines of philosophical musings about a general subject - create a story and tell it in verse.

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool of 126.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 5 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Sunday, January 22, 2017.

All contest entries will be reviewed by the Contest Entry Compliance Committee. The committee will read all entries to ensure that the contest rules are being followed.

The voting will begin after the committee determines that all entries qualify and disqualify those that do not. This contest is open to all members. Past contest winners can join the contest. A voting booth will be created shortly after the deadline is reached. At that time all participants will be contacted so they can vote.

The voting booth will include this summary of the contest:
