Contest Description

What to Submit.. any theme

Dizain.... NEW only accepted in this contest,  one .... or more stanza's connected by theme_***your title and poem should make sense***


A dizain is a type of poem that follows a prescribed format of syllables per line while adhering to a certain rhyme scheme.

To write a dizain follow these guidelines. A dizain should be comprised of a 10-line stanza which includes 8-10 syllables in every line and is written in accordance with this rhyme scheme: ababbccdcd. True rhyming is best but I will accept near rhymes, but the poem must rhyme on some level.


*Please do not break up the stanza into 2 parts... as it is a 10 line stanza.


Preparing Your Entry

Check spelling, grammar, and presentation.  Check syllable counts and rhyming. Punctuation is optional.   

A Note  - If possible could you NOT use the poem you write for me in this contest in another ongoing contest until this one is judged.  Thank you. 

Contact me by soupmail if you have any questions. 

I will be using Rhymezone, HowManysyllables (however,I do not always agree with HMS and will use my judgement in those cases), and PS Grammar Checker to verify all poems.
