Are you a poet? Are you a critic of poetry? Are you competitive or just looking for some fun? Or perhaps you’d rather sit back and watch everyone else battle it out? Either way, we have room for you in Protagonize’s original Poetry Tournament. I will be telling you why you should join momentarily.
Everything has a beginning. Every story, every poem, every life. We all start somewhere. One year ago FogCat and ElzuWolfe began the poetical landslide that is the Poetry Tournament. Who would believe that this small, fun competition could grow into something that many would come to enjoy and talk about? I certainly didn’t.
It started with 8 poets and 3 judges. A humble gathering of people joining together with a familiar interest, yet our last tournament saw 30 poets and an equal number of judges. This Tournament has reached new proportions with the help of Rac7hel, Archi_Teuthis, smac972 and most of all: You.
The poets that come and join our Tournament every season are what make it so much fun. We have seen some amazing poetry, and undoubtedly everyone has had the chance to learn a thing or two about poetry and about life.
So why should you join the Poetry Tournament on the 8th of August, 2010? You should join if you have a poem in your heart, yearning for a place to shine. It’s the perfect place to use your muse. This is also a great place to go if you want to assist others’ abilities by giving them useful feedback and critique. Who knows, you might even learn something yourself, and make some new friends.
The Poetry Tournament is a brilliantly fun, learning experience with plenty of opportunity to share your work as a poet or a place to read some of protagonize’s phenomenal creativity. Interested? Apply as a judge now, or as a poet on the 8th August. The Tournament will commence on the 22nd. Make this your beginning.
Interested? You can find all you need to know about the tournament here, see you soon!
