meltdown contest judged
Blog Posted:7/8/2013 2:08:00 PM


Thanks to all who took the time and made the effort to enter my contest
as always there were some very strong pieces
please don't be discouraged if you didn't place
29 of the 60 made it to the second round
this contest was judged blindly,
as will be all my contests in the future.
I like to leave the theme of my contests pretty vague
rather than pigeonhole people with restrictions and rules:
I think its fascinating to see where people go with maximum poetic freedom.
I'll be running another contest soon and hope to have a prize for first place.
I'll keep you posted.
If there is a God, I hope he/she blesses all of you with peace of rhyme.~

    Thank you very much, Anthony, for the HM in your contest! I too was taken by the variety of poems, and the different avenues people took with your theme! That to me is always the most fascinating thing about the contests! Thanks again!

    I have no idea if I won. I am guessing not, since I did not do a true meltdown poem but something related to melting candy. It will be fun to see your winners!! Congrats to them.
