Greetings Bloggers and Followers,
Please take note Poetic Soul Slam Off is in full effect! Feel free to send this link to those you know and believe are great writers of poetry. You are also invited to participate. I am looking forward to reading amazing poetry. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to inquire. All poems entered will be deleted once the contest closes. No reproduction of them will take place as this violates your rights! As a published author, I would never allow such a travesty.
Thank you for your time.
1) Word Play/Creativity – uses parts of figurative speech to convey the central idea of the poem
2) Delivery – the strength of the voice in the poem, can you “hear” the passion as you read?
3) Content – is the poem cohesive? Does it come together or remain together?
4) Mechanics – apply CUPS (capitalization usage punctuation spelling)
