So, if somebody signs up to fill the 16th position, we're all set, but if nobody else signs up, we're left with an odd number of contestants, forcing us to come up with some more... creative ideas on how to structure the tournament.

    We need one more contestant and I'd REALLY like to have at least one more judge. Judging splits happen quite often and I intend for my role in this to be as facilitator. I'd happily work with four, but two is just asking for me to have to break an unhappy number of ties.

    I think that puts us at 16 contestants with an even number of judges. Not inherently unworkable.

    But yeah, I'm antsy to get this started. I move in a little over three weeks and then I'm starting my PhD program two weeks later, so I'm going to be pressed for time very soon.

    I'm, oddly enough, in the same situation as you. I start my PhD at the end of agust and would love to get far into this before then.

    I guess.... Though judging sounds more appealing right now. But I'll write then if we need. Though I was expecting this to start earlier. Hmm. I'll not be around the next three weekends, or the week after that. Do you think this would work out if I joined or should I just drop out?

    Hmm...if we start now, then it shouldn't be too much of a problem depending on how far you make it and what the pace is like...the week's absence is what I foresee as an issue...then again, I'm not sure what the pace of these is normally like or how much missing the weekend will impact you. I'd ask Zar.

    And this is what I have to say:

    Drat! A day late (and a dollar short). I just stumbled upon this thread and noticed that you all JUST started.

    I am looking forward to watching this thread for the next couple of months, since if there is a week writting and a week judging, that puts the end of the contest on Sept 13th. Is that how this usually runs?

    Oh, and if people are so inclined to run a 17th contest, I would like to put my name down now. :) This seems like a lot of fun!

    Good luck to all the poets!
    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.The players were attacked individually on the road on the way to town by werewolves. To survive, they had to team up then and there without knowing anything about eachother (literally -- all character sheets were completed without other players' knowledge).

    Do you have any judging guidelines? I would have to warn you that I am a bit rusty -- have not composed a poem in many years (that's why I was drawn to the thread -- am thinking of picking up some of my old hobbies), but I would enjoy participating in whatever capacity.

    Why certainly! We'd love to have you judge for us.

    Do note that, despite our best efforts, these contests have never run from start to finish in two months.

    As for qualifications, you need only to be someone who enjoys poetry and has a reasonable skill at telling others what you think of their work in a constructive manner. While it is a competition, most participants are actually more interested in feedback on their work so that they can improve. (Of course, being told that your submission is good enough to advance to the next round is always nice too.) (I'd recommend going back and reading some of the judgements from past threads to get an idea of what the competitors have gotten used to getting. Those are all linked in the OP.)

    Shall I slot you in as a judge then?

    And Sleep comes on me unawares

    Yes, we have one very strict, very stringent judging requirement. That you like poetry, and desire to judge for the improvement of art and craft of both yourself and the competitors!

    We are very much a rip the page out bunch here.

    Also, you put me against Szilard in the first round. damn, stepping it up.

    Oddly, that's how I felt about being put up against you.

    Prompt: Mistrust
    Title: The War of Jenkins' Ear
    Spoiler
    Show
    1713
    Fires were not as hot,
    Nor furnaces as efficient,
    As a modern day's pot.

    The flavors exploded,
    As the food cooked slow.
    Like dinner, like war: cannons loaded.

    Over a decade was Europe's Pain,
    As nations fought for the succession
    Until King Philip was the ruler of Spain.

    Treaties set and kings decided,
    Britain could now trade with Spain,
    So off the ships went with sails guided.

    1738
    Tensions rose again.
    Rumors went flying of pirates,
    When in came in ol' Jen.

    The Spanish are attacking left and right,
    Seizing our ships and stealing our goods.
    For that, we must stand and fight!


    War started with renewed vigor,
    Spain and Britain grown angry,
    As fingers tightened on the trigger.

    1731
    Rebecca was boarded and searched,
    Crew questioned and hurt,
    When FandiaŮo was ready to burst.

    °Sť que eres un pirata*, Jenkin!
    With a flash and slash,
    The ear was cut off the captain.

    The Spaniards left the ship empty handed
    As Captain Jenkins saved his ear in brandy,
    Ready to show parliament when he landed.

    Misunderstandings led to mistrust,
    And men soon forgot logic,
    As swords readied to thrust.

    Title: 30 Sucks

    Spoiler
    Show
    The words flowed easy
    When young I was.

    The thoughts were simple
    Yet I was profound.

    The ribbons and accolades
    From my words on a page
    Whether spoken in smoky room
    Or on a theaterís platform.

    But the sun spins ever round the globe
    The moon rises and falls and never will slow
    As the years creep on and my body and mind fail me
    I stutter and spooner, grasp at syllables, rhymes escape and meter loses rhythm.

    The words now fight,
    Though old I am not yet.

    My thoughts are profound,
    But simply expressed.

    Contests online or a page view count,
    From novels crafted tine by tine,
    Be they shouted at a crowded web,
    Or posted silently on some corner of net.

    I am not old, yet my pen hand shakes,
    Filling notebooks by the score with scattered drafts,
    But is it good, or is it mostly crap, have I suffered Sturgeonís law,
    What great betrayal is it, when after it has served you well, your own mind you mistrust.

    Title: Zap

    Spoiler
    Show
    ZAP

    A candlestick of spider spit,
    Grey or gray crayon wax,
    (Not crayola, but rose art)
    melty and unfailing,
    to form wax museum monsters,
    to impede;
    too big for somersaulting over.
    A wrought iron curly cue,
    through broken glasses,
    in a fog storm.
    Crows crash-landing: Boom.
    The resulting fire is neither beauty,
    nor warmth,
    and the smoke slithers slowly,
    a nebula snake
    creeping up spines
    and as ice water.
    Saltwater as or in the well;
    the ocean, yet not the ocean,
    in that the ocean is terrifying,
    yet terrific,
    large, yet allows yellow sailboats admission,
    giving them half price tickets on Fridays
    and alternate Wednesdays,
    and punching their ticket with a smile
    And submarines; No extra charge,
    for gazing at starfish
    Except now they don't have port-holes,
    so the squid-ink not-love letters
    go undelivered. (The mailmen are all
    eels, or maybe being held hostage by them)
    Self-defeating; a popsicle in summer,
    abandoned like the dinosaurs.
    Am I? I am not, or knotted?
    Do I think? I am...perhaps.
    Falling. Or flying incorrectly.
    The swing rusts
    for want of a child and a push.

    A hand is what was needed.
    A hand is what came,
    wrapped in a glimmer,
    warping, but not warped,
    warming, and gently, softly, warm.
    It was solitary, floating.
    Was this the sea? The sky?
    The skylark? Where we float,
    are floating. Is floating.
    And my imaginings, fed to me
    somehow like punch cards;
    crafted carefully,
    not like my thunderstorms,
    showed me the "arm"
    An eye, white-toothed smiling.
    An eye that was like allusion;
    pupil of endless self reference,
    to everything,
    all at once.
    From the eye,
    through the hand,
    into me,
    came the feeling a light switch gets
    Flicked swiftly upwards; a thrill,
    and the thrill is a familiar fingerprint,
    spiraling somehow.
    Fractalate, faberge.

    Jotls. It gave me jolts.
    Things that rhyme with jolts;
    volts, and bolts. Surges.
    They held a banquet,
    held my skin
    under at least eleven
    different sieges.
    Seizures. It gave me seizures
    in the best possible way;
    a flashlight behind my eyes,
    a fresh coat of colorful paint,
    for bicycle frame bones
    and lungs replaced with dirigibles
    and every neuron was plucked.
    I was seized, shaken, blasted, unzippered
    Awake. Awake gavels hit my stomach.
    Sparks leapt from this thing I call I.
    They bubbled forth, froth, dragons
    Inside to out, and I was the rotating door
    That entices children into the library.
    They flipped and pinwheeled, spiraling.
    It smelled of roses,
    tasted of wine,
    felt like shadow,
    sounded like the noble cello...
    altogether, the sensation
    was somewhere between
    marble,
    classic literature,
    an aquarium,
    every firework show(er)
    and what these facsimiles all mocked
    (though unintentionally, beautifully)

    Remind me to write that thank-you card.
    Remind me to dig up that Popsicle fossil,
    buried long ago.

    It's worth noting that you're allowed to edit your poem clear up until the deadline without issue. It's only if the poem is edited after the deadline that it becomes a problem.

    Judges, just a reminder, this means that you shouldn't be reading poems until the deadline has passed so that changes and edits can be made.

    Oh, and if people are so inclined to run a 17th contest, I would like to put my name down now. :) This seems like a lot of fun!

    Good luck to all the poets!
    ...I suppose that makes me five days late and flat broke. Ah well, I'll settle for being a spectator. And if we can actually sign up for the next one this early, count me in too.

    Actually, if you're interested, I'd be more than happy to add you to the judges roster as well. We typically like to have five judges at the start. Three is just the bare minimum.

    Especially since judge disappearance is an endemic problem, with last round being a perfect example of that.
    At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman, and these hills, the softness of the sky, the outline of the trees at this very minute lose the illusory meaning with which we clothed them, henceforth more remote than a lost paradise.
