Choka contest update
Blog Posted:5/20/2012 9:00:00 AM

 

Ladies and Gents,
  
   I am holding the "Choka for a Chokehold" contest. Thus far I have received some great entries-  unfortunately about 1/4 are unusable due to form. This is a STRICT Choka form contest



This gives a choice of form structures of ..... 5 - 7 - 7 - 5 - 7 - 7.. etc, or .. 5 - 7 - 5 - 5 - 7 - 5.. etc.

Please make appropriate corrections.
Thanks,

Amy G

    I agree with the person here who had problems with the syllable counter here. It kind of sucks, Amy. I hope you are just going by your own poetic instincts on syllable count (and keeping in mind that British and americans sometimes use different counts in a few of their words).

    Amy, I sure hope I counted my syllables correctly. Choka is hard for people to get. I researched it a while back before your contest and found two different definitions and both were confusing to me. However, they always finish with a 7 syllable line, right? And they can be as long as you want them? I know one poet here commented that I wrote too many lines, but to my understanding, a Choka is supposed to be a long poem. Good luck with your judging. Andrea

    Went to recheck my poem and found two lines off. I do have a problem with the syllable counter program: the one told me both 'glorious' and 'waves' had 2 syllables. I have also noticed that one's accent makes pronounciation different, for example British and American Southern. Thanks for the warning, though.
