Just remember to turn your pc's off before polishing that keyboard, CCComp Peeps. Or you'll end up opening a bunch of windows and changing settings like my cats when they feel the need to nap on my laptop!

Maybe you could teach them to play the piano instead

I just wanted to ask, since we have a couple weeks to start writing before they begin, will the Classic Championship entry guidelines be the same as last years ?

Hi, PR! Yes; they will remain the same. I'll post them here with applicable links to the championship competitions so potential entrants may familiarize themselves. Particularly with who qualifies as an entrant, i.e. - only those who have entered a CCC during 2020.

Welcome to our first annual Classic Corner Champion Female Division challenge, of which the winner will be crowned our 2019 Queen of the Classics and will be awarded a specially designed trophy.  

Firstly, only participants of previous Classic Corner comps qualify to receive any award. If your name is on the lists below, you qualify!

Female entrants

[ Insert list of qualifiers here ]

Male entrants:

[ insert list of qualifiers here ]

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/11020/

Thirdly, you are allowed to submit a maximum of 2 entries emulating any of the following poets you choose to honor:

[ Insert list here ]

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 and

1) be linked to in the forum, NOT copy/pasted.

2) be tagged with the theme of the poet being emulated ( for example, #OceanVuong ).

3) have link to the poem 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 ( unless the inspiratioal poem exceeds that amount ).

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:

See you in January!

If I remember correctly, Jack, you've entered a CCC before, so you would qualify. Johnny will verify whether my memory serves me well or not!  

We had some kick-ass entries as well as new entrants this year. this year. Can't wait for the championship.
