And DUP's Na/GloPoWriMo has officially begun with the Phillipines kicking us off! We're just under 5 hours until South Africa weighs in at midnight, followed by England and America!

Johnny and I want to take this opportunity to thank each registrant for their commitment to this global poetry challenge. We're here to support and encourage you across the finish line!

Not everyone made it last year, and a few teetered on the guidelnes ( so please reread today to ensure you understand ); however, we're determined everyone will this year, if we have anything to do with it!

Registration is still open in the respective timezones until midnight tonight for anyone who hasn't, but wants to register!

Best of luck, break a pen/keyboard, and happy writing to each of you!

After day 1 we have 21 weighing in ( 5 twice into their second day ), and 6 AWOL! Because yesterday was a National holiday, you have until midnight ( your time zone ) tonight to post two poems. If you fail to post, your name will be dropped from the competition and you forfeit your chance at this year's trophy.

Happy poeting!

Question:

1. Can I post ahead of time (say more than once in a day)?
2. Are we limited to just 30 pieces,  or can we post more¿
3. Am a bit confused,  what about the Nano Prompt Competition?  As I understand,  I am also qualified to enter it,  but what to post in it?  It says copy paste etc.  But am a bit slow in understanding the mechanics completely.

Thanks!

Hi, Oxy!

1. You can double-post for two reasons:  if you know you won't be available the following day. Or if you're making up a day you missed. Just leave a footnote explaining why you're double-posting.

2. In the comp you're limited to 30. This prevents excess flooding and confusion for those keeping count and tallying words/ unique words. NO ONE needs more work through April. If you'd like to post more, you can through your own DUP page.

3. The NaPo prompts were posted in the official comp. If you scroll the pages you'll see them. Any poem written from a prompt can be copied from the NaPo comp into the Prompt Comp for a chance to win a second trophy. 🏆🏆

The Prompt Comp link is listed with the prompts.

Hope this helps!

Rose, nice to see you! Please provide an explanation as to why you're late with your next post!

If your name has been struck, it's because you have not posted and we haven't heard from you! Message us if Life has pulled the rug out from under you, and you're ready to stand back up!

Unless you live in England or beyond, or you're not going to be available tomorrow, there is absolutely NO reason you should have more than three posts in the comp. The comp is lax in that it allows for LIFE and circumstances beyond your control, such as being out of town, no internet access, death in the family, etc.

It's not a race to see who finishes first.

Lastly, this speakeasy thread is where discussion needs to take place hereout.That's why we have it.

Happy poeting!

Please can we have rule clarification regarding "strong language & erotica" ie. You say Tamatoe I say Tomaato.. You say Vagina and I perspire droplets of salty sweat on your cock and cunt? Is "Fuck this" and "Bitch from Hell" permitted or would it contravene the Global effort of being seemingly clean poetic junkies in a constitutional court from the red light district? Thank you in advance.

Al, as far as I know, there are no rules! Oh, wait, there is one! "Don't be a dick!" LOL!

I'll get Mr. Blaze to weigh in too, but I'm sure you're fine. This isn't a facebook feature. As long as it doesn't personally attack another member, go for it! It's just good to see you back.

Mister Blaze says you can write about all the foul mouthed sex with your genitalia slathered in tomato paste that you care to.
