Poetry Contest: small eternities
small eternities Results
Grand prize: DC$ 20
The rules were given as the following:
lately i've come to find that less can mean more.
so that is exactly what i am proposing, less words for more ducats. it is time to shed some of that verbiage and find your inner minimalist.
here are the rules:
20 ducats for 20 words.
-your poem must be 20 words exactly no more no less.
waste not want not
-all words count. use your ration of words carefully. you can strike a fierce blow with a score of words or you can fail to make a dent.
still lives, small eternities
-the contents of your piece should capture a moment, place me in that moment, i want to feel what you feel if only briefly.
reflect your literacy
-spell check and grammar check are your friends, use them, embrace them. any error amongst such a small number of words can be fatal.
that all, now get to it. happy writing. :)
