:pointr:Contest and Challenge Info:pointl:

For those of our membership that enjoy challenges, we have at least two a month.

Rules--
:bulletgreen: You may only submit one poem to each challenge at a time.
:bulletgreen: You must submit your poem via NOTE, as a link to the deviation.
:bulletgreen: Challenge winners are featured in a journal, and given the spotlight on our shoutboard.

Word challenges will consist of you being given a word, or a few words creating a "concept" or "theme", and you'll choose any form of poetry and write something that goes with the word/s.

Form challenges will consist of you being assigned a form each month, and writing on any topic, in that form.

At the end of the contest period, we as a group will vote for the poem we feel is the best example of the form and theme. The winners will be featured on our journal AND the shoutboard.

***

:pointr:Write-Ups:pointl:
If you want to do an official write-up on any forms with a specified rhyme scheme, meter, and/or repetition, please note poetic-forms.  Suggestions on forms for others to write up are welcome.

The write-ups should contain a brief history of the form, perhaps an example, and a full description of the rhyme scheme, meter, common themes, etc. You will receive a :heart: next to your name for accepted form write-ups.

Newest Write-ups:
pamelaski is working on write-ups for several Irish and Welsh poetic forms.

Sorry it took so long. :( We had a financial crunch in my family. I just bought your subscription, just a moment ago... and I'm about to post your poem in the journal.

Thanks!

Hey, it's alright, in fact you didn't have to give it to me, I was just wondering.

Can we submit a poem if we're not a member?

And whichever way we submit, can we submit an old haiku, or must it be a new poem written specifically for the contest?

You can submit if you're not a member, though by submitting that makes you part of the community. At least I have no problems if people wish to submit that aren't officially members.

And it doesn't have to be a newly written haiku though that's preferred.
