Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem on the theme of the cosmos.  Write about a planet, a constellation, a

star, a moon, a pulsar, a black hole, or anything related to the cosmos. Talk about the

science, the mythology, the astronomy, the astrology, or entwine the pieces together to

spin your story. Got metaphors?  Use them too! Do some quick research on the subject

and spin it poetically.  Choose one or two aspects or make it complicated, whatever you


Any form is acceptable.

Old and New poems are welcome.

Bonus points for science and astronomy but be accurate.

I will know if you are not.

I will also know if you are not accurate with your mythology or astrology.

Basically, just be accurate.

Use punctuation!

Spelling and grammar are important to me.

No limit on length but do try to keep it reasonable.

No names on your poem, I prefer to judge blindly.
