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!


Noted Ahavati,  thanks for the clarification and guidance.

A gentle reminder to post once daily unless you know you'll be absent the following day, or were absent the previous and are making it up. In either of these cases, please footnote as to why you're double posting.

You will be allowed three consecutive days of non-posting before your name is removed from the list. If you return, message us as to why life pulled the rug out from under you, i.e. - death in the family, etc., and you'll be put back in so that you can make up the days missed.

When making up multiple days missed, please post only two per day - the poem due that day and one makeup poem, so as not to flood the forum.

Thank you for your participation and dedication to National Poetry Writing Month!

Happy Poeting!

If your name has been struck it's because you haven't posted in three days, nor have we heard from you. If life has pulled the rug out from under you for any reason, message us and let us know why. We'll put you back in and allow you to double post each day until you're caught up.

We want to note that the quality of poems this year is exceptional! Keep at it, poets!

If your name has been struck it's because you haven't posted in three days, nor have we heard from you. If life has pulled the rug out from under you for any reason, post the reason in this thread.  Or, if it's personal,  message. We'll put you back in and allow you to double post each day until you're caught up.

Don't forget to copy/paste into the prompt comp if applicable! Remember to stay on the appropriate day, and post once daily unless you will be absent the following day, or missed the previous day.

We want to take this moment to say that your commitment and dedication are admirable. The poetry this year is as exceptional as it is inspiring!

Happy Poeting!

Welcome to the end of week one, Poets! You're 1/4th the way home! Tomorrow's tally will begin with a numeral I for week one, followed by subsequent checks through week II, and so forth.

If your name has been struck it's because you haven't posted in three days! If life has knocked you down, get back in here and double-post daily to catch up! If we've inadvertently omitted a check boil us in hot oil until we get it right.

We simply can't get over the level of poetry this year! It's almost as though the challenge has nothing to do with it, and you're all writing of your own volition just to be writing!

Well f'n done!

If your name has a strike through it, it means you haven't posted in three days, and we haven't heard from you. You still have time to jump in and catch up by double-posting daily until caught up!

Onward, Poets! April 30th or bust!

For the record, I can't forget something I was unaware of in the first place. I don't know where you posted this is the proper place to comment on the competition but amidst how crowded the thread had become I see the wisdom in this platform for the fact that there's so much room for misunderstanding. If it was at the beginning, amidst all the rules, is it completely unreasonable that something might have been missed? I don't hold your frustrated banter of veiled condescension in reply to my concern against you as it must be difficult to facilitate 21 poets like herding cats. Repeating your self must get taxing to some degree, ill do what I can to be more conscious of the ever adapting day to day change in dynamics. I understand it was a mistake that my poem was overlooked or just negated to be counted. The only reason I was asking was to see if it had been ommited for whatever reason and if I needed to resubmit. Sorry for the misunderstanding I'll be certain to ensure to follow the new rule. My mistake.

Actually, it's not a " new rule ". It was expressed the third day in regards to those posting ahead.

https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/forum/competitions/read/10143/165/

At which you read and replied and we subsequently conversed. Missed it was not, thus the term forgot.

I don't hold your frustrated banter of veiled condescension in reply to my concern against you as it must be difficult to facilitate 21 poets like herding cats.

Actually, it wasn't an attempt to be condescending. It was an attempt to dull the edge of having to reinforce a broken rule with humor. It can be like herding cats at times, yes; however, as a participant, I also understand fully that it gets confusing.

Thank you for your consideration. It's greatly appreciated.

My Battles     - - -  - - (8 / 30)

demons at the gate
last battle won the war goes on
I can't let them pass

through the darkened mist
I hear them coming this way
I hide; then ambush

they told me a lot
especially about you
I now don't feel safe

sinners assassin
a death for past transgressions
I am the target

pretend beautiful
Like angels of the light
pure evil disguised

they try not to leave
Like an unwelcome dinner guest
Sulphur smell lingers

demons everywhere
apart from inside my head
I evicted them

Oh I see it was a multi faceted message and our interaction was merely in regards to double posting, so that was what I focused on as that was something id violated directly and overlooked the last part. At any rate I didn't mean to exculate things on the premise of a misunderstanding. The idea of forgetting was just assumed that I had seen everything in the loaded message. Its irrelevant at this point. I probably shouldn't have tripped on your response, its really not that big a deal.

By the way thank you and blaze for hosting this national poetry month thread, I know it can be demanding and I don't mean to be difficult.
