The Blind Winter Poetry Contest
With the winter comes a specific sense of appearance, be it snow, a frosty window and a fireplace, or blistering sun, the beach, and a cool drink. No matter where the location, the season brings a certain sense of familiarity...and we're challenging you to reconsider that familiar scene!
The prompt, should you choose to take it on, is to write a poem about winter as you know it. The challenge, however, is that you can't use the sense of sight within the poem. Deprived of sight, you'll have to rely on your other four senses as a means of describing winter as you know it.
Only new poetry will be accepted for this contest, so no recycling older works as entries.
All entries must be posted to the Literature gallery (not Scraps), though any subcategory in the poetry category is allowed.
Entries must be no longer than 50 lines.
You may enter up to three poems, though we encourage you to focus on quality over quantity.
How to Enter: Send a note to #CRLiterature with the subject "Blind Winter", and include a link to your contest entry in the body of the note.
All entries must be posted after the posting of this article, and before Friday, January 20, 2012, by 11:59 PM PST.
