Hello everyone, I’m holding a poetry contest called “Seshat Nibada’s WordPress Challenge” which I invite you all to join.
1. Create an account on http://www.writerscafe.org
2. Post your best poems
3. Enter them into the contest (on a periodic basis)
The first event starts today February 23rd, 2015:
Once you have created your account on writer’s cafe, go to this link:
Once there, click on Submit.
Also, add me as a friend on Writer’s Cafe: here:
Please comment here if you have decided to join, it’s open to everyone!
I will reward the best fresh authentic poems entered, and will feature the winners here.
Let me know what your wordpress site is and what your identity there is, do please reblog this, retweet this and on facebook as well to invite your friends who may be poets as well,
Thanks, will post details on this blog or in the page here “Calling All Poets”
I appreciate any support on this project, to empower and find new talent and encourage writers of all walks of life.
For each contest, there are 10 “winners” judged the quality poems of at least 40 entries per contest. That is, if there are not at least 40 entries, the contest will be delayed until there is. The winners earn badge points that accumulate in a sophisticated ranking system. So this is a chance to expose your poems (please don’t be shy) to other poets and also test your artistic skill and unique creativity against a wide pool of aspiring and active poem crafters.
Here are some of the things we look for in a poem:
1 – Power of concept
2 – Beauty
3 – Narrative depth
4 – Uniqueness & authenticity
5 – Title choice
6 – Re-Readability
7 – Inspirational quotient: does it uplift, inspire, empower and hold sacred
8 – Form, meter & structure
9 – Imagery
9 – Philosophical, existential and metaphysical depth
10 – Social relevance
The following topics and themes of poetry are particularly appreciated:
– Erotic verse
– Mystical verse
Mission Statement of the WordPress Challenge

– To give a forum, stage and artistic avenue that is unique online for aspiring poets to showcase their work

Thanks for re-blogging this Mission2Mars
Thanks indeed to you for your sweetness 🙂
Stay happy 😀
Lovely idea, Wuji!
Wish I were a poet…
Neige, anyone can be a poet! It’s not like some forms of art where you need years of practice just to be competent 🙂
I see… Still, I’d need words, right? I don’t have the words to be a poet… 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement!
How many submissions per person? I submitted one :D!
In the first contest it will be one, depending on the turnout, it may go up in future editions 🙂 Thank you for joining WR007
Awesome :D! Thanks for creating the contest!
Thanks for liking my poem Scalawag on WordMusic. I will go enter your poetry contest later today. Thanks for asking me.
That would be great Brent 🙂
Reblogged this on Free Verse, Poetry, & Humor in bite size pieces….
