End of Summer Poetry Contest Update

W-O-W!

I have to start off this post by saying how impressed I am by the quality of poems that have been submitted to the End of Summer Poetry Contest! You guys are really amazing!

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who has reblogged the poem, your extra points have been attributed and you have successfully brought in more participants which is what really makes this a fun and thriving contest! For those of you who have not reblogged, you still can to gain those extra +2 points. Also, please do not forget that you must be following my blog for your poem to be eligible to win. I’ve read a handful of really superb poems from bloggers who are not following and it would be a shame for your poem to be considered invalid.

All around guys, you are doing an amazing job! Even from the return poets who participated in the last poetry contest, I can tell that your work is improving and evolving as you are maturing in your writing.

Again, I’m really impressed! You are all brilliant!

It is going to be extremely difficult to pick a winner!

Speaking of a winner, don’t forget that I will be announcing the winner of the Poetry Contest first through my Facebook during the “All About Blogging” live event on September 3rd @4pm PST.

If you miss the live broadcast (I will be sad!) I will still announce the winner(s) on my blog the following day, September 4th at my usual time.

Happy Writing Everyone!

Keep those summer-themed poems coming!

End of Summer POETRY CONTEST

Hello Everyone, it’s time to do this again!

Are you a poet? Do you enjoy writing poems until your heart is sore or until it soars?

I’ve held a poetry contest once before and I absolutely adored it! It was a blast and I got to meet tons of amazing poets and bloggers. For my current followers, you may have noticed an influx of poetry appearing on my own blog lately. What can I say, it’s simply flowing out of me! Anyhow, I am so excited to hold an “End of Summer Poetry Contest.” Unlike my first Poetry Contest, this contest is themed!

*Please be sure to read all of the rules, otherwise your poem may not be eligible!*

Summer (1)

Rules:

  • To be eligible for this competition you must be subscribed to my page (i.e. following and receiving emails.) Not subscribed yet? No worries! Go to my home screen and click FOLLOW (I’ll receive a notification when you do :D)
  • Leave your poem or a link to your chosen poem in the comments below.
  • Your poem must be summer-themed! It does not have to be happy or beach or bright, but it does need to have some connection to summer. (A dark summer theme might be interesting)
  • I will be using a point system to chose the winner:
    • You will receive 5 points automatically for subscribing (everyone must subscribe to be eligible)
    • You will receive another 2 points for sharing the contest on your your own blog and linking back
    • Your poem will be rated on a 1-10 scale based on creativity, structure, content, and overall awesomeness.
    • Technically someone can still win without sharing my contest, but sharing/ reblogging would provide additional points for any poems that are tied.
    • Because of the expected high volume of submissions, please keep your poem at a reasonable length. For sure no poems longer than a page. If you have any questions regarding length, feel free to ask in the comment section!
    • You can only submit one poem per blogger.
  • Last date for submissions is August 31st!

Prizes:

  • The WINNER of this poetry competition will received two things
    • First, the winner of this contest will receive a $10 cash prize! (I know, I know, it’s not much but come on, you guys are fellow bloggers/writers/poets. Your empty bank accounts probably look a lot like mine). This $10 cash prize can only be awarded through PayPal, so please keep that in mind.
    • Second, their poem and their blog/bio will be featured on my site. I currently have over 1.4K followers. This will be a great chance for my followers to catch a glimpse of you and your blog!

So, sit back on a beach somewhere or perhaps in a meadow or maybe on a mountain top and start writing those Summer-themed poems!
