Lyrics Make The Song Contest

Poetry Contest
Hear ye! Hear ye!

Poets have their own contests. Storytellers have their own contests. And, I believe it is high time us lyricists have our own contest too. That is why I created, and sponsor, my extremely popular Brett Matthew West Lyrics Make The Song Contest each month.

This is the only contest of its kind on FanStory.

Spread the word! All lyricists are invited and encouraged to participate. Now is the time to pen your newest, and best, masterpiece and enter this contest that fills up FAST!


Must be song lyrics only.

Of course, you can also add a picture if you desire.

Should you have any questions about this contest PM me.

The August 2017 winner was pome lover with "Flirtin'".

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool of 90.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 5 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest Is Closed.

This contest requires "blind" entries. That means your posted work will have no means to identify you when viewed. Your name and other information will not be shown. Fan notifications will not be sent for work posted in this contest. It will still be available in your portfolio and treated like all other posts. But when viewed information to identify it with you will not be shown until after the voting is completed.

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. If your entry is disqualified you will not be refunded the entry fees. The committee will review the entries when the deadline is reached. 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:
