Everyone is welcome to join and you most certainly do [I]not[/I] need to be a poet or even understand poetry to join the fun! All you have to do is post indicating that you?d like to give it a try. Once you?ve done that I?ll pair people up for a round where I give you a challenge and both people respond with their entry. I assure you, it won?t be hard but rather something simple and fun to play with. For example one round might go like this: [U]Acrostic Poetry:[/U] Simply put the letters of the word given down the side of your post and then go back to each letter and think of a word, phrase or sentence that starts with the letter and describes your subject. [U]Subject:[/U] Hockey [B]H[/B]ockey is my favorite sport [B]O[/B]n the ice or street [B]C[/B]ool and fun [B]K[/B]eep on playing [B]E[/B]xercise and stronger [B]Y[/B]ou should try As you can see that?s pretty easy and fun to do. Once both people have posted their entry then it?s up to the members to comment and vote on the poem they liked the best. Each round will depend on how many people sign up. If say eight do, then there will be four challenges at the same time. Similar poetry but of course a different key word for the assignment. Those who win will advance to the next round and will be given a new challenge in the form of another type of poetry. If there is a tie in terms of votes, then I will act as judge and break that tie by picking a winner. So if there any questions post them here, as well as signing up. ^_^ My intent is to start the challenges in about a week, so that people will have enough time to sign up for the contest.
