Facebook l Google+ Group l Our Staff l Rules/F.A.Q.

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

Rules:



: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.

NOW HERE'S THE QUESTION

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


Deadline



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

Good day, participants!

This announcement is designed to inform you what is to take place over the course of the next day or so.

We are about to begin our judging. You will be critiqued on creativity, originality, form and (naturally) skill. From the entries we have received 20 will make it on to the next round, with 4 being eliminated until the victor is decided.

The results will be posted as soon as we are finished, and I ask you to please have patience while this is happening.

Good luck to everyone, and may the odds be ever in your favor. (or some other competition quote from a movie or a book or a video game.. whatever.)

What is Scratch That

This is the big one!Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to announce our next contest!
Scratch That!
What the hell is a "scratch that?"
An excellent question! This is the biggest thing this group has ever done. It will be 5 rounds of tournament style writing, with varying themes and writing styles! Each round will last 2 weeks! (Dates will be posted further along in this journal.)
Anyone can enter! We're trying to make this as big as possible, so members, non-members and their dogs may enter! Bare in mind, however, that the very first round will be an audition. Only 50 people will then be selected to go through to the competition, so make sure you write to the very best of your ability!
At the end of every round, 5 people will be eliminated. We will celebrate the best poet of that round by giving them small prizes.
That sounds awesome, but what's in it for me?
Prizes, my friend. Riches beyond your wildest dreams, fame and glory.
No, I lied. Here's what is actuall
