Poetry Contest

In honour of this being Poetry Month, I thought it would be fun to have a poetry contest for the kids! Here are the rules:

  • Write an original poem on any topic you wish. I thought Springy poems would be great but pick whatever inspires you.
  • The poem may be in any form; haiku, free form, acrostic, limerick etc...
  • One poem entry per MASHE kid. You can put in more than one poem but your name only goes in to the draw one time.
  • The contest is open to members of the group and ends May Ist. This is open to all members whether you live in Moncton or not. The prize will be sent by mail.
  • There will be a draw held the first week of May and one lucky poet will win a $25 gift card from Chapters. This is a random draw, the poems will not be judged.

How to enter~

Please send your entries to me at mashe_nb (at) yahoo (dot) ca.

Include with your poem your first name, age and a brief description of what you wrote. If you illustrated your poem too you can send me a photo of it and I'll include it with your entry.

I'll post all the entries here on the blog.

Don't take this too serious and just have fun with it!
