I'm a late babyboomer Canadian born in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, raised in Northern Ontario, now living in Ottawa, I'm finding out that oncoming golden years offer a very rich perspective on life. 

Please visit often my growing collection of poems and I hope you find many will resonate with you. I'd love to hear your comments.

I am a member of Haiku Canada and have had haiku published.

By the way, my avatar is an ink painting I created on rice paper years ago. The symbol means PLAY - something I have finally learn how to do in later years and poetry is definitely my favourite form of play.

P.S. My name is pronounced Lynn.

 

 

 

 


Judging completed for TIPS FOR MODERN POETRY TO BUDDING POETS OF ALL AGES


Blog Posted:7/4/2018 2:56:00 PM

Just a quick note about my judging of the contest TIPS FOR MODERN POETRY TO BUDDING POETS OF ALL AGES.

I had a very complex marking system based on each element requested.

I was looking for material suitable for a particular audience of budding poets. Some people forgot essential elements, submitted poems exceeding the 20-line limit, a few did not respect the # of lines per element. But in general, the quality of the entries was fabulous and the tips were diverse. Due to limited character space offered with basic memberhip, one entry needed to supplement with a SoupMail and thata was fine for my purposes.

I judged the entries in two batches. The first batch were marked and then participants were contacted with requests for specific tweaking when elements were missing. Their marks were not amended but changes will definitely be included for the end product, i.e. a compilation of tips and poems from my PS colleagues.

Of course, I will be doing the same for Batch 2... and continue to liaise with participants as I progress through this publication project.

THANK YOU so much for your participation and support.

I am confused as to the reason for wanting me to view this blog. Guess I wasn't aware there was a contest you initiated. I'm not too familiar with navigating on this site.

Line, I was going to work on it this week with my time off but I had no idea it was to close out this week. Anyway, Congrats to all the winners! I realize even with my few days left of vacation, I do not even have time for half the things I wanted to do!

Thank you for the challenge, Line, and the placement. It brought back many memories of when I started out as a poet here on PS in July 2012 - how time flies ... Congratulations to all the winners.
