About Broken Wings

Bloggers Photo

I  am a writer, a poet. My poetry is deep, dark and sad, I write a lot about death, but I can write happy if I want to and do. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dreaming.  I collect old books, vintage clothing and jewelry,  I seem to like anything old,  I adore the Victorian house where I live with my cats and I often feel out of place in this world.

I will be using howmanysyllables.com to check syllables

 

Contest deadline is October 8, 2017

Judging will be by October 8, 2017

 

Preparing Your Entry

Check spelling, grammar, punctuation if used, rhyming, syllables and PRESENTATION.  You do not have to use  meter like Iambic Pentameter etc, unless you want to,  just follow all the other rules of the form, perhaps put a note on the bottom, for example, Sestina- unmetered or whatever form you selected that normally requires meter..   Images and audio is allowed.

A Note to Poetry Contestants

Adding this sponsors name and contest to me, is respectful but is always optional.
