Scratch That: Round 1 (7/11/13)

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 25, 2013, 3:46 PM
Facebook l Google+ Group l Our Staff l Rules/F.A.Q.

I have decided, you have until the end of the month.


:bulletred:If you did not participate in the Audition round, you can not participate in any other rounds.
:bulletred:Only one submission per contestant, per round.
:bulletred:Submission must be created ONLY for this contest. (You can not submit pre-written pieces.)
:bulletred:Submission can be edited and changed as many times as you like until the deadline.
:bulletred:Submissions for the contest must go into the "Scratch That" folder.
:bulletred:No collaborative pieces. (Fufufufuf, wonder why that's crossed out. I can hear the "OH SHIT"'s and rushes to the theme part.)
:bulletred:No bribing judges.
:bulletred:No flaming/hating/complaining the contest/judges/other entries. (Seriously, everything is set in stone so there will be no changes to deadlines, rules, themes, poetry types, etc.)

Breaking any of these rules will cause you IMMEDIATE disqualification.

Theme and Poetry Type:

Type: Free-verse

Theme: Pair-up and Conquer!

That's right you guys have to pair up with one another (must be someone in S.T.) and write a poem. You guys are going to hate me for this ;-;
You each must write 2 stanzas (or more, just make sure the work is equally shared).

This is about teamwork, working together to make something beautiful.  You guys can write about anything, its your combined choice.

One person must post the completed product and include which stanzas each of you wrote.


do you guys want us to pair you up or do you want to discuss it amoungst yourselves?


30/11/13 (May be altered to give you guys more time, since you know, working together is something that needs time.)

Does the submitted work for monthly contest HAVE TO rhyme or can it just have a beat or rythmn?
La--Volpe Aug 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No, it can be free verse.

I'd like to simply say in this little box that this is one of the best poetry groups in all of Deviant Art. You have nearly 2k member, including me, and I (as many others) would simply hate to see it go. On behalf of the members of this group who give a damn about the fate of this place I'd like to ask, "What can we do to help this group from not just staying here but making it better?"

Okay so I'm a new member and I need this burning question answered :XD:

what is Scratch That?! :nuu:
La--Volpe Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a huge poetry tournament that we organise. Huge as in 6 months + long.
TheWritingDragon Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :giggle: so is it currently going on or did it end?
La--Volpe Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It JUST ended... 8 months worth of planning by Jordan and I and then it ends ;_; It was so good, except now we feel less.... involved. :XD:

I don't know about Jordan but I feel less in tune with all members who didn't compete in it. It's so depressing.

Will you also critique prose? :meow:
La--Volpe May 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It will depend on the size, prose tends to take longer to critique because they are usually longer, if we have time, sure, but if not, it may take some time.
