A Poem Written by YOU

Season 3 - 2014

 

The time is finally upon us. A new season of APWBY has begun. For those of you that don't know what this is, it's a golden opportunity for you to collaborate with other writers on the site to take part in writing a single poem. The difference between the previous seasons and this season is that this one will feel less like a collaboration and more like an actual contest/competition.

 

How it works:

Everyone likes math right? Of course not, but bare with me here. The contest will last from today (Octobor 1st) and end on November 26. The poem will have 32 lines and will be divided into 8 stanzas. Each stanza will have 4 lines. For 8 weeks everyone will all be working on one stanza at a time. In the comments section below you will submit your 4 lines. I will reply to your comment with a rating.

From now until next Wednesday all we will be doing is working on the first stanza. Seems simple right? But there's more to it than you think, this is where the fun part begins.

If you submit a stanza and I rate it an 8.5 and another user submits a stanza and his gets a rating of 9, his stanza will replace the one that you submitted and will be added into the official poem however, if you come along and submit another stanza and I rate it a 9.5 or 10, you will regain your spot.

Only the submitted stanza with the current highest rating will remain in the official poem itself. Every Wednesday, we will move onto a new stanza and the previous stanza will be put into a bold font format. Whenever you see a stanza that is in bold it means that it is finalized and can't be replaced by anything you submit.

 

 

The win List:

This is a list of the people who have a finalized stanza (a stanza in bold format). At the end of the contest, if your name is on this list the most, you will win a fan request from me and I will also read 3 of the works of your choice. 2nd place will win a fan request and 1 read and 3rd place will win 1 read.
