Welcome to our second annual Classic Corner Champion Female Division
challenge, of which the winner will be crowned our 2020 Queen of the Classics
and will be awarded a specially designed trophy as well as be featured across our website and social network accounts with links back to your DU profile.
Firstly, while any
DU member may enter ( as long as they adhere by the guidelines ), only participants of the Classic Corner Comps
qualify to receive any award. If your name is on the lists below, you qualify! Female qualifyers:
Valeriyabeyond Male qualifyers:
Secondly, 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/11707/#511859
Thirdly, you are allowed to submit a maximum of 2 entries emulating any of the classic/modern poets that have been featured during the year 2020 ( make certain they've been featured! ).
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!
Lastly. . . The Rules 1.
Two entries per DUP persona allowed. Keep this thread clean of everything but entries until after the awards announcement is made. Comment on entries directly to the member's page if you feel moved to. Post any questions or concerns about the comp in the Classic Corner Discussion thread @ https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/forum/speakeasy/read/10855/ 2.
No extreme erotica*; this is open to all ages and can't be viewed with an ECW ( Extreme Content Warning ). * Extreme Erotica would be considered visual imagery which would depict any type of sexual activity as well as the direct naming of body parts, i.e. - nipples, pussy, cock, et al. 3.
No exact word limit; however, attempt to keep it no more than 250 - 300 ( UNLESS the inspirational poem is longer ). 4.
Any form is acceptable ( but studying the poet is advised ). This includes visual and spoken word pieces. 5.
You must select the name of your chosen poet/s in your themes. All previous Classic Corner poets have themes created, and thus your entries will be added to those pages. 6.
In your Author's note, provide the poem title ( even if the title of your poem is the same as the inspirational poems ) as well as a link to the poem ( not website ) by your chosen poet that inspired yours. Without this, we have no way of determining if you were truly inspired by the poet, or simply swapped fresh words into her existing poetry and form, which could be considered plagiarism. 7.
You may edit your entry up until the moment the competition closes and is locked for judging. Then it's out of our hands; please don't message with corrections once the comp has closed.
Comp will be judged by Ahavati & JohnnyBlaze.
You have one month; best of luck to all entrants!
If you have any questions, please post them to the Classic Corner Discussion thread in the Speakeasy forum: https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/forum/speakeasy/read/10855/
