Whispers are seeping free from the rim of staff doors on how Writing Forums is seeking out the best again.
All over WF, poets are being huddled into black cars, blindfolded -- driven to secret places -- all to be handed a personal invite with eight... secretive.... words:

~ The Writing Forums' Grand Invitational POETRY Challenge (2016)! ~

What a way to help kick-start National Poetry Month: WF's poets stepping up to the mic and going head to head in a bid to win another fine Writing Forums' annual challenge!

It all kicks off April 1st, with cash prizes to giveaway, goodies galore, and a possible chance at publication.

But in true teaser style, challenge hosts PiP & Harper Cole are keeping the prompt reveal pretty tight to their chests, so keep an eye out over the next few days for the announcement. Because with only two weeks to submit... a taste of WF's finest poets... and loads of events to help celebrate National Poetry Month...

Will you be able to walk into the unknown?


P.s. no WF poets were harmed in preparation for this annual challenge!!
Mostly because the hosts jacked the black limo and are now having a limo party!

We are pleased to report that no pond ooze verse manglers were captured during the ensuing raids...As they are a protected species...:frog:

Yes, it approaches, like the cloven hooves of doom, like the whisper of death on the midnight breeze, like the heavy thud of the taxman's fist upon the door. BE WARNED! None who undertake this challenge shall ever be the same again ... :twisted:

It'll still be fun, though. :)

Back the Black Sheep, a Stormcrest Ram...Bringing April showers to feed the flowers, which distract the taxman, who goes off to left field to count the daisies...Unfortunately, these aren't daisies, they're Snap Dragons and Man Eating Tiger Lilies...There are reasons pond ooze verse manglers have avoided detection...;)

Like the white heat of the daisy petals, or the crimson scent of the lilies the spirit shall engulf the contestants, probably single malt.

How to give the poets the kiss of life if they fall in? :scratch:

Sssshhhh.... they think you are throwing a party. They don't know the real reason we abducted them

Your pond's a tax haven? :shock:

Do you have quantifiable proof of quality nonsense? It is a prerequisite to Pond Region admittance...

I was fooled again! I thought upon seeing this, some other writing forum took away our poets and I would go find them!

You are terrible!

Terribly wonderful. I missed a word. Ha!
