I started writing poetry in November 2006. However, after losing my poetry notebook with about 135 poems in early 2009, I lost my passion for poetry completely. I was jobless for almost a year due to the recession of 2014, during that time period, I reignited my passion for poetry to stave off boredom. I discovered Poetrysoup and started posting my poems in 2016. The first poem I posted, "Wings of A Butterfly"

 


My Doberman Contest has been revamped!


Blog Posted:7/29/2018 10:04:00 PM

Greetings, Soupers!

I'm still pretty new at sponsoring contests, so pardon me if my original contest was too challenging or confusing. Hopefully, I've made it much simpler. You can choose any form---4 haikus, 3 tankas, free verse, etc---that allows you to write a 12-line poem. Up to 20 placings in this contest!

Good luck everyone!

I am not sure if a submitted poem can have more than 12 lines for your contest? It says it in your blog but not in the contest description. I sent you soup mail as well. Thank you

working on one for your contest. Thought it was very simple requirements compared to some. Just time - sometimes there are a lot one wants to enter. hope can use your original set up. Stick to your guns - what you want. Many contests fill up very fast, so generally we leave entering the ones that are not for a while. Not really fair to alter in middle though. And probably a small percentage of us are dog lovers and even smaller Doberman. I do have an amazing true Doberman story but it doesn't fit your requirements.

Eventually I hope to try out your challenge. There are too many contests going on and I have little time. I thought your idea sounded fun! I hope you get lots of entries!

I am not really a dog person especially a dober, so it is difficult for me to get inspired now if you said cat paws.. I would have endless possibilities.. unless that dober has my cat in his paws I am coming up with nothing, I will have to talk to my muse about this.

Hi Edward , it may be wise to remove the word count restriction on the contest page as not everyone reads the blogs:-) hugs Jan xx
