    It's not gonna happen anytime soon. It's still a thought in my head. But for those who would like to have some type of tourney thing to go down in the realm, please drop your thoughts.

    well...even if we did have one, how will you judge...thats the hard part...what do you value most, and who should judge...i think you should pick atleast 5 fair judges for this...that way we have five different ways of thinking and also you should atleast have some main topic to be judging about....like....creativity of the poem as a poem, manipulation of literary devices, originality of images and style...and ect. , but i dont think' it would be a bad idea....but like lpoet said, we don't if people are going to do it or not...so we have to offer like something as an incentive, i think some type of title is nice...and we should also limit the number of application that can enter, so it would go wild...ohhh one more idea...umm, im guessing you're gonna make it this a topical tournamet, right? well, i think it'd be cool if we have an entry piece, one of theirs to see if they qualified, and those who qualify, can participate in the tournament...well, thats my two cents...hope it works out this time, unlike that collab thing...i was actually looking forward to that, cept my partner never got in touch...*sigh*

    it sounds great i want in.

    put people in catergories about certain things, place 3-5 people in each catergory. then out of the 20-30 so people involved, they vote on who they like the best in all the catergories they were not in. The qualifiers from each round move up.

    haha since when is poetry competitive?

    better yet, since when is it in a poet's nature to be competetive?

    im currently in an audio tourny so i might not make the time--less a cash prize

    This is for fun, not competition.

    ^^^^



    As long as it goes down like this, I'll support it and keep tryin to get people to enjoy the creativity of writing. Some people only write for the purpose of ridding themselves of pain, but few realize it's creative purpose and flow on life...Anyhow, this is a good idea...
