Time for another WD Poetic Forms Challenge. This time around, we'll be writing nonet poems. Click the link for the rules related to this type of poem. Nonets are pretty easy to figure out. Start with a 9-syllable line and lose a syllable in each line after--all the way down to the 1-syllable 9th line.
If this is your first time participating in a WD Poetic Forms Challenge, here are the guidelines:
- Write as many original nonet poems as you wish and paste them in the comments below
- Please include your name as you would like it to appear in print (just in case you win)
- Deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. (Atlanta GA time) on July 29, 2012
- Have fun!
Why participate? Well, for one, it's fun to write poems. For two, it's free. But for three, the winning poem and poet will be featured in a future issue of Writer's Digest magazine as a prime example of the nonet form in my Poetic Asides column.
So these challenges incorporate the three F's: Fun, free, fame
Next week, I'll announce the winner on this blog.
Until then, have fun poeming!
