[Contest] Life Changes Poetry/Prose Contest

Discussion in 'Empire Events' started by Krysyy, Aug 24, 2018.

  1. Calling all poets and authors! This contest is for you. As EMC has grown, we've seen many changes and we've grown as a community over the years as a result. No matter what happens in each of our lives, the only constant will always be change.

    Write a poem or prose (non-poetry) piece about the theme 'Life Changes'. There are TWO separate contests!

    Poetry Guidelines:
    • Poem must follow the theme 'Life Changes'.
    • Maximum of 1000 words. No minimum.
    • Must be written in English.
    • Rhyming is not required.
    • Indicate the intentional poem format (haiku, sonnet, etc) on the entry form.
    • No plagiarism. If it's not your original work, don't send it in.
    • Keep it appropriate and adhere to EMC content rules.
    Prose Guidelines:
    • Prose piece must follow the theme 'Life Changes'.
    • Maximum of 3000 words. No minimum.
    • Must be written in English.
    • No plagiarism. If it's not your original work, don't send it in.
    • Keep it appropriate and adhere to EMC content rules.
    You may submit only oneentry per person and per type. So you may submit 1 poem and 1 prose, but NOT 2+ poems, or 2+ prose.

    1 poem and 1 prose will be selected from the submissions as winners. For this contest, only the 1st place winners will be given prizes. All submissions will be viewable by the community after judging is finalized.
    Poetry: Empire Poet's Quill (Life Changes Edition) + 100,000 rupees
    Prose: Empire Author's Manuscript (Life Changes Edition) + 100,000 rupees

    Who's judging:
    Krysyy and a panel of 3 judges (anonymous), which includes an English teacher (yes, we recruited one IRL just for this :cool:).

    Entry Links:

  18. Mhm... Do you get bonus points when English is your third langue? :p

    I'm sure going to try something, I don't think it'll be any good though... I am a kinda decent writer in Dutch, but I don't think I can even come close to a normal English person...
