The same but different challenge is as follows:

Write two poems that are the same but different. If you need an example there are two poems on my page, Love's Dance(Original Version) and Love's Dance(Modern Version). I had to do this as a writing assignment in college and loved it. The two poems are about the same subject and tell basically the same story with subtle differences.

Get really creative with this one. You can choose any style of writing and any topic.

I will only accept poetry. No novels or short stories. Sorry but I have to read two pieces for each contestant.
I can only take fifteen contestants this time out. Just leave me a comment that you want to join.
Deadline is March 1, 2010. So write me something really awesome.

Prizes are as follows:

First prize
I will become a fan of whoever wins and read up to 20 of their stories, poems, or book chapters. These will be picked by the winner.
Second place
I will read up to 10 stories, poems, or book chapters of the winner's choice.
Third place
