Poetry Challenge 16: Halovidian

The challenge this time is to write a poem using rhyme, meter/rhythm, and/or alliteration, with the following catch: we have to use at least three of the following invented words, and assign our own meaning to them. You can also include made-up words of your own. If necessary, provide pronunciation guides. Feel free to invent plurals and other forms for these words.

Suggested but not required theme: the nature of language.

The challenge opens here two weeks from today. That’s July 8th, 2018. Entries will be considered for paid inclusion in the third issue of The Author’s Journal of Inventive Literature. The theme for the journal issue is Life of Books.

Entries will also be considered for inclusion in a book collection of our challenge poems. We plan to publish around the time we reach Challenge 20, so that’s coming up. If you’re new, you might want to acquaint yourself with our poetic values and past challenges.

We’ll be giving one another feedback aimed at analysis more than critique, although suggestions for improvement are also welcome.
