Non-themed Poetry Challenge (Originally 12 Hours of Poetry Challenge)
We’ve done lots of writing challenges here and we tend to offer critiques. For a change, this challenge was just for fun with critiques by request only.
I started Saturday, June 26th, at 9 am Eastern Daylight Time, and ended at 10 pm. My personal goal was to write a poem an hour, totaling 12 hours. I did make the 12 poem goal, though I went a few minutes over the time period. It was such a fun way to spend the day, and although by the end I was so tired I was churning out doggerel, I didn’t regret a line of it. It was a true poetic workout.
Like all my challenges, this one remains open forever. This is where you can post a poem on any theme, unlike our usual challenges, which have strict requirements. Any poem that can pass a decency check will be accepted, but we are especially fond of skillful, traditional rhyming and metrical poems, as well as highly imaginative work, written for delight.
To participate, just post a poem in the comments below. I’ve posted some writing prompts, but you may also use your own ideas, or those contained in our other challenges.
