Hi there! So, my name is Daniel Reidy, I'm not new to Booksie, but I've only recently started using the site regularly. I've also just gotten into poetry, and now I think it's time for my first attempt at a poetry contest! I'm very new to this whole contest business so any tips or anything you may have would be greatly appreciated! So, here's how it's going to play out:

I'm a fan of darker poetry, poetry which doesn't have a happy ending, poetry on topics which are a bit grim or a bit more mature (this does not mean sex, although if you can incorporate sex into your poem in a poetic and meaningful way it's all good). I myself am not a dark person, on the contrary, I love life and have a blast every day! But I think when it comes to poetry, raw emotion can truly be expressed when it comes to the miserable and evil and sad and any other words you associate with "dark". There aren't any other rules, as long as the theme is not happy or upbeat - no poems about frolicking in the grass or falling in love.

And now the prizes:

1st Place: 10 reading requests, a fan (if I'm not already one) and you will be mentioned on my Booksie page FOREVER, because hey, I'm a nice guy :D I will also link your poem on my Booksie page, so everyone can see it's awesomeness!

2nd Place: 5 reading requests, a fan, and again you will gain a life's position on my Booksie page, along with your winning entry.

3rd Place: 2 reading requests, a fan, and yes, you guessed it, a position on my Booksie page for ever and ever, as well as your poem :)

The deadline for entering a poem is March 31st, and the results will be announced within days of that deadline.

You can enter pieces already published on Booksie, I absolutely don't mind that! And that's all I have to say. Good luck to everyone who enters and I hope you have a lot of fun! I certainly will enjoy reading all the entries!
