For the 3rd Writer’s Digest Poetic Form Challenge, I’m seeking lunes. I’ll accept both Kelly and Collom lunes. Click here to learn more about the lune form.
As in previous challenges, the winner will be featured in a future issue of Writer’s Digest (the November/December issue to be precise).
The lune is a very simple form modeled after the haiku. For the Kelly lune, write a tercet with 5 syllables in the first line, 3 syllables in the second line and 5 syllables in the final line. For the Collom lune, it’s a tercet with 3 words in the first line, 5 words in the second line and 3 words in the final line.
The deadline for the lune challenge is July 17, 2010. Or roughly three weeks for three lines.
