Words Only Poem

Poetry Contest
This is a poetry contest.


You will use BASIC EDITOR.

Do not change the font when you copy your poem to the editor or if you type it directly in. Keep the default font and don't change it.

Do not change the background colour. Leave the basic grey background as is.

Do not add artwork, music or any other attachment of any kind.

No author's notes.

Every entry should LOOK exactly the same. Black words in the basic font on a grey background.

If your piece varies, it WILL be disqualified.

You may write your piece on any topic in any style. You won't be disqualified for content or style.

The end result should be that all entries look exactly the same and the only thing to judge is the words themselves.

It is often alleged that some poets have an advantage due to their skills with display and presentation. Let's find out. :))

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool of 180.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 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:

    Vote for the best writing. Yes, insight and revelation is a part of good writing. The fact that you LIKE a topic should have no bearing on your choice. This is a WRITING competition. PLEASE vote for the best writing, in your opinion. :))
