Sad Poems

Poetry Contest
Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 60.00 member dollars. There are 6 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 90.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 5 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Saturday, May 14, 2022.

This contest requires "blind" entries. That means your posted work will have no means to identify you when viewed. Your name and other information will not be shown. Fan notifications will not be sent for work posted in this contest. It will still be available in your portfolio and treated like all other posts. But when viewed information to identify it with you will not be shown until after the voting is completed. As a blind entry, authors should make every effort to ensure that their identity can not be determined from the post. That includes formatting of text, descriptions, title formatting and author notes.

All contest entries will be reviewed by the Contest Entry Compliance Committee. The committee will read all entries to ensure that the contest rules are being followed. If your entry is disqualified you will not be refunded the entry fees. The committee will review the entries when the deadline is reached. The voting will begin after the committee determines that all entries qualify and disqualify those that do not. This contest is open to all members. Past contest winners can join the contest. A voting booth will be created shortly after the deadline is reached. At that time all participants will be contacted so they can vote.

The voting booth will include this summary of the contest:
