Well done in the Curation Contest last week! The pieces you chose were beautifully created and matched perfectly. I discovered so many great artists!
Our top six winners are:
Congratulations! You will be contacted about your prizes within the next 24 hours.
For this week, we're reviewing our alphabet and testing out our poetry skills! Your task is to write a poem in ABC style revolving around a particular theme!
An ABC poem is when the first word of line 1 begins with an A, the first word of line 2 begins with a B etc. For example:
A long time ago
Before the world began
Came the story of a
Dapper comet clothed in
Evening apparel and
Fancy frocks, looking for a
Good lookin' gal to be
His match made in heaven.
See how it works? It's simple and fun! If you don't feel comfortable writing a poem, you could write a story in ABC style, with each sentence beginning with the next letter of the alphabet.
Every good contest needs a theme, and your ABC poems/stories should be about:
Remember, your work could be more of a story. You don't have to use all of the letters of the alphabet, but you may! Just make sure that your entry contains a story or poem in which each line begins with the next letter of the alphabet.
We'll choose three winners who will receive 1000 Points each! All entries must be submitted as comments to this blog and must be posted by Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles, CA, time. Winners will be judged based on creativity, inclusion of the theme, and accuracy to the ABC style.
Let's see those wordsmith skills shine!
