About Shaz Cheesman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI live in a regional town out of Melbourne in Australia......I refer to this little place I live as 'Quietville' 

I am 43, although age is just a number not a definition. So I enjoy life as much as I possibly can. Writing has always been part of my life - mainly through journalling. But for the last 10 years I have especially taken an interest in writing poems......I have still a great deal to learn. Writing is my creative release.

I enjoy interacting with people and one of my favourite past times is getting involved in local amateur theatre, I enjoy playing comical and unusual characters on stage, but also enjoy coordinating and creating make-up effects for stage productions.

50 Words - NEW Contest!

Blog Posted:5/29/2012 12:52:00 AM

Hi Everyone

Well thank you for the responses to my last blog post which raised a question about whether there is a correct form name for the 50 word poem.

It got me thinking after some encouragement from the responses that I should actually create a contest which is all about 50 Words.

Now I'm scared because I actually have just submitted a NEW Contest - my first one.......I hope I have set it up right!!!!!

It's titled '50 Words' - so look it up and you gotta be in it to win it........


Ps......Due to a problem in me being able to add a post to respond to David's comment below....The title does not contribute to the 50 words. I have also now included this in the contest information....

Cheers - Take 2

    Hullo Chaz. I hope that you enjoy your first sponsor experience on the soup. So for this contest, aside from the 50 words, anything goes? No holds barred? I might take a shot in the dark with this contest of yours.

    Hosting the contest is not difficult, picking the winners in what I have trouble with because there are so many talented people and only so many prizes. Good luck, and thank you for posting a contest.
