Ellip is a form of poetry: nine syllables divided into three words or phrases; unlimited stanzas.

Below are the results of my ellip contest. If you have written an ellip but did not enter the contest, I can include them here. More examples are listed also.

"Honey Dippers" was featured in the June 2013 issue of LYNX from! If you are unfamiliar with Jane Reichhold, be inspired by reading her biography and her writing.
