We hatched a grand plan to celebrate the U.S. National Poetry Month with interviews, NaPoWriMo, various poetry discussions etc... so the next logical step was to create a
Prize
Invitational
Challenge for our WF poets.

We could hardly let the fiction writers have all the fun could we?

But who should be eligible to enter we asked? Trust me, behind every 'Grand' anything there is usually a 'Grand' debate...
After a lot of deliberation, head-scratching and hand-wringing here is the full list of members who can enter WF's Inaugural Grand Invitational Poetry Challenge (http://www.writingforums.com/threads/164269-WF-s-Inaugural-Grand-Invitational-Poetry-Challenge).

Oh well, whichever whatway. Just like that hagspetti, Bob's poetry products are delicious however you're gonna spell it.

Looking forward to reading some great poems in this challenge. :eagerness:

I'm not sure if it was intended but the link(s) under the laureate2014 and laureate2015 open up a log-in window for admin. I have a feeling that's not meant to happen :)
If you need to change it, feel free to alter my quoted text too.

I was looking at the various ranks of the qualified entrants, (I like patterns, it's the dork in me). Most are veterans, mentors, FofWF, or staff. As an outlier in Turtle Green, I think it says a lot about the dedication members and staff have to this forum. Folks stick around because the quality of the community is just that good. Diverse and involved, it is a boon to writers of all genres, not just poets.

It should be interesting. The word count limit is going to be a challenge. Time to make my verbiage earn its keep.

I watched a fisherman dig in the sand for bait. I was fascinated. The moral of the story: Please don't dig too hard there ain't no worms in my patch of sand :)
