We at PiND are happy to announce that starting next week, we will start a weekly poetry-writing contest called Poetipics. This contest is designed to help you keep writing poetry, find recognition for poetry, spread poetry, and even get stuff for writing good poetry.
How do we do all that, you ask?
It's called Poetipics! Poetipics are pictures that we'll throw up on Facebook every Thursday. The challenge to you is to write the best short poem possible about that picture, then post your poem as a comment on the poetipic on Facebook. Once it's up, start spreading the word! The more likes you get on your comment, the greater chance you have of winning. The top three poems will be posted here every Monday afternoon, and the top poet gets a prize!
Pretty simple idea, right? We think so. We hope it'll help us all keep writing poems and, as is our thing here at PiND, we hope it spreads poetry around so the world can know for sure that poetry, indeed, is not dead.
The first poetipic goes up on Facebook next Thursday, so keep an eye out!
Thanks for stopping by, and may the poetry be with you.
