Welcome to our first annual Classic Corner Champion Female Division
challenge, of which the winner will be crowned our 2019 Queen of the
Classics! Why in October? Because we are taking November and December off
to enjoy the holidays and focus on NaPo 2020 before next year's mad rush! We will be kicking off January's CC with winners of our last polls, Langston Hughes and Louise Glück.
The winner will be awarded a specially designed trophy. Firstly

, wait ... why the two lists above?
We want you to feel comfortable participating in the comp of your
choice. If you are on either list, but identify with being a female,
then this is your comp.
If you identify with being male, then only submit entries to the Male
Division comp posted by JohnnyBlaze here: https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/forum/competitions/read/11020/ Thirdly
, you are allowed to submit a maximum of 2 entries emulating
any of the following poets you choose to honor:
Rainer Maria Rilke
Federico Garcia Lorca
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We will judge which is the best of your two entries to ensure that three
individuals have an opportunity to qualify for the Crown and placements. Fourthly
, what does it mean to emulate
? We want YOU to
make everyone believe your poem was written by one of these poets. Write
as though you were that poet! Fifthly
, the RULES
! Each entry must NEW
1) be linked to in the forum, NOT copy/pasted.
2) be tagged with the theme of the poet being emulated ( for example,
3) have links or titles to poems belonging to said poet being
emulated that inspired yours. Put this information in your poem's Notes.
We use this to determine if you were truly inspired or simply swapped
fresh words into an existing poem ( which is a form of plagiarism
4) NOT contain any erotica; this is open to all ages and can't be
viewed with an ECW ( Extreme Content Warning ).
5) contain a minimum of 50 words in the body, but try to keep it no more
than 250 - 300.
Comp will be judged by Ahavati & JohnnyBlaze
