I've been writing ever since I first picked up a pen, and have had poems published in various literary magazines and anthologies. My passion is contemporary free verse, and I read a lot, because I do believe that the more you read, the more it enhances your own work. Aside from writing and literature, my other main interests are music and singing, theatre, and ballet. I sing all genres from classical through to jazz, and I'm a big fan of Amy Winehouse (sharing a birthday with her!). I also have an interest in vintage fashion.

Irritate Me! Contest Judged

Blog Posted:5/16/2014 5:17:00 PM
Well, you did your worst (or best!) but I survived the reading and judging process without tearing out too much hair or frothing at the mouth! In fact, what was more irritating was the large number of entries I received that weren't repetitive form poems - including one labelled 'blank verse', which was exactly that: blank beneath the title! lol This contest has been quite a learning experience for me, too; I have never written a repetitive form poem and hardly ever read them, so I had to read up on the various forms. So has this contest changed my mind about repetitive poetry? Well, let me put it this way: I don't think I shall be writing a repetitive form poem any time in the near future! lol But big congratulations to my twelve winners, and thanks to everybody who participated! :)

    Pretty sure the blank verse was a joke. Pretty good one, actually... (No, it wasn't me.)

    wowowow, this is a contest I wanted very badly to win. Thanks so much, Charlotte. I am very happy you enjoyed my poem. Rondeau are not quite as irritating as other kinds of repetitive poetry because only a partial line is repeated. I can't wait to see your other winners. congrats to them.
