A Minute for Newbies

Poetry Contest
Never Won A Contest
This contest is only open to those who have never won a contest on FanStory. Write a minute poem stating why you should be awarded a free seat in the Introduction to Metre Class starting on November 15th. The poem does not need to be metrical. The winner will win the cash prize and will also be awarded a free seat in the class. Second and third places will be treated as 'reserves' in case the winner is not able to accept the class seat (but the winner will still get the cash prize).

Here is an example of a minute poem that takes no account of metre.
