AFTER FOREVER POETRY CONTEST FINALIZED.


Blog Posted:12/22/2017 5:21:00 PM

 

MY THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED. 

I chose to go with multiple placements.....HEY....I'm the judge!!!

-11 (eleven) poems were disqualified because they failed to include the requested DATE

-several were not to chosen form, rhyme scheme, meter, etc.

In the contests I sponsor I attempt to choose themes that will challenge the poet.

The entries in this conrest were particularly interesting (even several that were disqualified for "rules" violations.

AGAIN, A THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED.
