Re-write One of my Poems Contest


Blog Posted:10/5/2012 9:23:00 AM
This contest is just for FUN! I promise you all, I will not in any way do any editing to my poetry, it will always remain the same. This is purely for Fun! Choose one of my poems which may be a bit 'suffering' and re-write it, your way. The title of the poem, and the overall theme must remain the same. You may NOT use any of the Birthday poems I've written. Anything else is fair game. I am sure this contest is going to be a BLAST, at least for me!
Surprise me with all your awesome words!  hugs, Catie :)


I have posted a "Re-Write Example" for those who need a bit of clarification as to what I am looking for. In my re-write of Nalanti's poem, I have tried to say everything that she said, point for point, then embellished it, and said it my way. But I did not change the message of the poem. That, is what I am looking for in your re-writes. Fun! fun!  Hope it helps! hugs, catie :)

    Hello, Catie, wow. I guess Joann was right, a few months ago, she had a contest, close to a contest I had in mind. "But, I never had the time to act on it" Anyways, she acted fast and had a contest similar to a contest I had in mind. I was shocked, how we were having a close to close idea. I was gonna have it in the long run.

    Continued~~OH Well! Her contest idea was close, but not right on the nail. Wow.. Guess what this is the contest idea, I soup-mailed her about. Asking if she did not mind if I ran a similar contest to the one she had that moment.. Well sadly I never acted fast on it.. Well, I am glad to know, we think some alike.. Because, believe it or not, this is a contest, I've been wanting to run for the longest time. But, you see, you approached it better, than I would have. I was actually gonna ask the poets to take any poem of mine and fix it to their liking. You are awesome.. well I still have one more contest up my sleeves. but right now it is not the time to run it. I will never have the time, to PD-fy another poets poem. My restaurant life is in effect as we speak.I have to find time to sneak on the soup, on my breaks. Anyways, I'm looking forward to see your results.. always~ PD

    what an interesting idea. You mean beyond mere editing then? Like actually taking free verse and changing it to a rhymed poem? Something like that? I will have to check this contest out!

    yes, you can change the form, or do whatever you like with it. i am looking for a complete re-write, not editing. Have fun with this one. hugs, catie :)
