l Our Staff
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 10 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 actually up for grabs!
1300 points or more (depending on donations from the generous citizens of deviantart.)
And a Three (3) Month Premium Membership! (Scoop that! Mmhmm!)
As I said, the prizes listed are guaranteed, but we could do so much more with donations. Please see the donations section below if you are interested in donating to a fabulous cause. So what are you looking for, exactly?
The usual, of course. We want to see happy things, and for that reason we have picked not a single depressing topic for you to write about. We expect you to stay true to the themes and writing styles, and if you don't it's automatic disqualification. One submission per round. If you wish to edit your submission you must do it before the round ends.
Otherwise, we take your entry as is.
Other than that, we're just looking for you to have fun with this. Explore your talent! Get into it! AUDITIONS

Looking for People to Donate PrizesHey everyone, as you read above I'm after some
"For what?" you may ask, it's for :iconpoetry-book:, my beloved poetry group! You see, there's this lovely, huge, awesome, fantastic, AMAZING contest that's going to be released on the 20th called
. The contest is actually, kinda... HUGE (as I said above), with 10 rounds, and each of them need prizes to keep the people that enter it to keep powering through it, (especially since that each round lasts for 2 weeks, and that means the contest is going to last up to 5 months!

This contest is open to all, you don't have to be a member to participate... And since all prize donators will be featured on each journal entry about the contest (up to 12 journals!) that means you guys get exposure, and if y
