Free Verse Time Again


Blog Posted:2/28/2013 4:42:00 PM
Every so often I enjoy hosting a free verse contest, partially because I want to see what the new poets are doing, also I just can't get enough of the established poet's free verse, Oh heck, i just love free verse! :) I will really be picky this time, so Wow me! Any theme is acceptable, but I am asking for a minimum of 25 lines. Your entry must be a new poem, and please, do not put your name or any identifying marks on your poem. I enjoy judging blindly.
I am looking forward to reading your entries. Love to all, Catie :)

    It's nice to see contests just for the free verse writers and not always just for rhyming poets, Catie. I love both kinds of poetry and only wish I could write free verse as well as you and the others at Soup who mostly use that form. Good luck with this contest!

    Thanks, Andrea. When you do write free verse, you are very good at it, so please, do not underestimate yourself. Love and hugs, Catie :)
