Reversible Poetry Contest Finalized
Blog Posted:9/9/2018 7:39:00 PM
I just recently finalized my Reversible Poetry contest and wanted to thank everyone who entered. As this was my first contest, I have a new-found appreciation for how difficult judging a contest truly is (especially Premium). I don't think I've second-guessed myself more than I just did in the first hour after finalizing the contest.
I was very lenient on what I allowed and how I 'graded' (spelling, missing words, 'reverse' not in title, etc.). A couple I had to disqualify because I read them in the New Poems queue because the word reverse wasn't there. One made it into my final 10 simply by dumb-luck that I hadn't already read it. I think in future contests I am going to be more firm and clear on the rules.
This was a very different poetry challenge and the entries were VERY diverse, and although it was quite a challenge, I can't wait to do it again.
In the meantime, I am going to shameless promote another reversible poem I just posted:
Wishing everyone the best,
