It may have already been mentioned but I don't recall. Are there genres of poetry, other than prose, that is frowned upon for posting in the NaPo? More specifically, sensual erotica. Nothing rude and crude.

I've taken notes down, exactly one day, about two lines and it's about a big gulp of gravy, haha! Fingers crossed there's some kind of food prompt. 🤯

I think Klingon Blood Pie is in there somewhere.

I had to dig through the rules, but here we go:

====================

Acceptable Entries & Writing Prompts

While we do provide prompts that are available in the adjacent NaPo Prompt Comp competition ( likewise beginning on April 1st ), you have the complete freedom to write about anything you want!

You will not be disqualified based on content or quality - with the exceptions of plagiarism; if we discover that you are merely swapping the wording in pre-existing poems or copying entire poems, you will be notified AFTER the competition that you will not be receiving the trophy.

However, PLEASE use common sense! Your poetry, unpolished or otherwise, is a reflection of the overall talent being fostered by DUP. We would hate to see outside readers, potential members or even publishers turned away by material meant to garner attention purely from shock value.

====================

So, you are good to go!

You're welcome.

I thought I had posted it along with all the other rules, but I seem to have overlooked it.

So I added it to them.

So song lyric format is allowed? =D So long as all the other criteria is met, obviously? I know there was something, no artwork, music, etc is allowed with our submissions when posted in the challenge thread.

If I post the same poem into my personal submissions to the website, can I include multimedia with that before May 1st?

I'm feeling overly ambitious that I'll write and have nothing left for my days except music and other various creative avenues.

Lyrics are just poems without the music!

Of course you can do whatever you want on your poems submitted through your account.

You might want to wait and read it before you make that comment!

But, thank you. 🖤
