It’s time for another poetic form challenge from Writer’s Digest. This time around, we’ll be tackling luc bat poems, which are poems of alternating lines of 6 and 8 syllables with an intricate rhyme scheme. You’ll just need to check out my original post to see what’s involved, but I promise they’re fun after you wrap your head around the form.
The winner of the challenge will be featured in a future issue of Writer’s Digest magazine as part of my Poetic Asides column. And yes, anyone can win–so previous experience is not considered (just your luc bats).
Here are the luc bat poem challenge rules:
- Write and share your luc bat entries in the comments below.
- Your luc bats must be previously unpublished (and yes, it’s okay to enter any you’ve only shared on this or your blog).
- Challenge begins now and wraps at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday (6/23/12).
- Results will be announced on the Poetic Asides blog–probably around the beginning of next week.
- Please remember to include your name with your luc bat(s) as you would like it to appear in the Writer’s Digest magazine. You know, just in case your luc bat is selected as the winner.
I think that’s about it. If you have any further questions, just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with Luc Bat in the subject line. But I promise, I’m pretty laid back about the whole process. Just share your luc bat, include your name, and have fun!
