Well met, travelers.
For this contest we would like you to submit a new work on the subject of a myth or legend of your choice OR create one of your own. It could be about a god, beast, place, or person. Whatever tickles your fancy. Here are a few rules and guidelines.
*No more than 30 lines.
*Your title must include "Dark Lore:" as a prefix to the title of the work so we know which new poems are contest entries.
Dark Lore: The Wise One
Dark Lore: Moth Man
Dark Lore: Sasquatch Lives!
* The more dark, violent or risqué the better.
All of our contests are judged on a fair scale I use to judge all The Tribe of Cain contests. Points are earned by creative merit (effort or illusion of effort given), Poetic elements ( rhyme, allegory, alliteration, etc..), and meter, which is a poetic element but I feel is crucial to a poem. And I don't judge specific meters, I just look to see if the poem moves in a way that makes reading it enjoyable.
There it is, good luck!
