A week after I set up this contest, I was at someone’s house and they said, “Hey! We have a box for you. We’ve had it for years and just kept forgetting to give it to you.”
When they handed it over, several treasures were inside, including this poem: On Judging Poetry.
The BATTLE of the BARDS has two poetry categories: Light and Thoughtful.
Kathryn excelled at both and you can, too.
The recipe Kathryn Kay passes on is simple:
- Say something new with words that ring true
- Obey grammar’s laws
- Bring your flair
- Bring your emotions
- Don’t chase us away trying to sound perfect
If you do these things, chances are you’re writing great poetry.
