Poetry Contest

Judging

-Judges: Seth_Cross, Krys_A_Night, Mizuio-Ken


-Rules:

  • You may submit any type of poem.
  • There is no limit on length.
  • Any theme is acceptable.
  • It must be one that YOU have written, and it can't be one that you've posted on this website previously. I would say that it has to be new period, but whos to say that you couldn't just post one that you've had sitting around for years and just tell us it's new, therefore making that pretty much impossible :p
  • Any copying of other member's poems, or copying of any previously-written poems will result in -reputation and disqualification. You will also be banned from any future poetry competitions.

Judging will be based on the following:

  • Emotion - Does the poem emit any kind of emotion, or make the reader feel a certain way? Or does it seem flat and uninteresting?
  • Flow - Does the poem have any kind of flow? Or does it seem choppy and hurried?
  • Originality - Have we all seen poems like this before? Or maybe you've created something fresh.
  • Grammar/Spelling - Is the poem legible and grammatically correct?
  • Word Quality - Do you use some interesting words to spice up your poem?
  • Visuals - Does your poem create a picture in the reader's mind?

-All of the judging criteria above will be judged out of 10 (10 being the best).


Prizes - +rep and a spot on Mizuio-Ken's empty wall space in his room (maybe with a printed medal thingy), and maybe one for you too via email :D

Yes. Either written in English or comes with a translated version. I don't speak any other languages at all and Krys speaks a few, but not natively...

But an entire poem like that?

It'd be huge and annoying to read. Just make two versions if you want ^.^

My entry:

Celestial

A beauty of complete paragon
Motility of a seraph's intentions
A sin to wirship this icon
Every word spoken creates interventions
Dragging through typical advance
Modulation for all five senses
Eyes crude to observe this devil dance

Angelic formations of false pretenses
A clever muse for your true design
A misty facade for your complete persona
Every aspect of beauty made to intertwine
Combine to create a modernized Latona
Incapable to admit this perfection
Angels found in your ressurection

There are some who would use any excuse to ban me.

    The old shoutbox wasn't supported anymore. We updated xenForo, so it had to be replaced.
