Irritate Me! Contest Judged - Charlotte Jade Puddifoot's Blog

About Charlotte Jade Puddifoot

Bloggers Photo

I've been writing since forever, and have had poems published in a variety of magazines and anthologies. My passion is contemporary free verse, and I read a lot, because I do believe that the more you read, the more it enhances your own work. Aside from writing and literature, my other main interests are music and singing, theatre, and ballet. I sing all genres from classical through to jazz. I also have an interest in vintage fashion.


Irritate Me! Contest Judged

Well, you did your worst (or best!) but I survived the reading and judging process without tearing out too much hair or frothing at the mouth! In fact, what was more irritating was the large number of entries I received that weren't repetitive form poems - including one labelled 'blank verse', which was exactly that: blank beneath the title! lol This contest has been quite a learning experience for me, too; I have never written a repetitive form poem and hardly ever read them, so I had to read up on the various forms. So has this contest changed my mind about repetitive poetry? Well, let me put it this way: I don't think I shall be writing a repetitive form poem any time in the near future! lol But big congratulations to my twelve winners, and thanks to everybody who participated! :)

Pretty sure the blank verse was a joke. Pretty good one, actually... (No, it wasn't me.)

wowowow, this is a contest I wanted very badly to win. Thanks so much, Charlotte. I am very happy you enjoyed my poem. Rondeau are not quite as irritating as other kinds of repetitive poetry because only a partial line is repeated. I can't wait to see your other winners. congrats to them.
