What to Submit?
1 original, poem on the theme of ............. interesting use of REPETITION (any subject)
When I ran my previous contest, several entries made such excellent use of repetition that they were clearly very lyrical without even rhyme. If I had been able to pick twelve winners, these two would have been number eleven and twelve.
This time the form is open, and the focus is on how you use repetition. Rhyme is NOT NECESSARY. I will not judge against rhyme, because it is possible to use both rhyme and repetition, but ak you consider using repetition INSTEAD of rhyme. The repetition can begin lines, end lines, or even form a whole verse or chorus.
Any form is acceptable.
First Prize, Glory
Second Prize, Glory
Third Prize, Glory
Twelve Honorable Mentions
