Welcome back everyone! So we do not have a winner to announce for our previous quarterly contest because.... Nobody entered.
And I don't blame you.
It was a busy end of the year.
But that's alright because we're going to be kicking off our contests this year with, drumroll please..... poetry!
That's right, we’re starting off our first quarter contest of the year 2023, which will run from the time of this post to March 28 at 11:59 p.m.
This quarter's theme is nature, and the subject is poetry! Write a poem of any length about God's creation, capturing the beauty and wonder of just a simple flower, or the majestic arc of the waves at sea. :D You can immortalize the Robin's song into words on a page, or send the reader deep into the Amazonian jungle.
The chosen poem will exhibit emotion, beauty, and wonder in structured and punctuated prose, it will flow naturally with descriptions to provoke the imagination.
Your poem does not have to rhyme, (though it does need punctuation), it does not have to be closed form, but it should have a detectable structure.
One submission per person.
The winner will be announced at the end of the contest duration, and their poem will be published on the blog. :)
My goal with this quarter is to showcase the wonder, majesty, and splendor of the created world around us.
I've included some prompts for inspiration if you find you'd like to enter but don't know what you want to write about. (Images taken from Canva)
I've also compiled a Pinterest board for even more inspiration, which you can find here.
And lastly the submission form is right here.
Now, dear writers, go forth and WRITE!
