Hello Everyone,

PokeHeroes will be hosting its third writing contest! This time around we are changing it up a bit.
Think about your life if you were living in Emera Town. Sitting outside under the bright sky or staring out the window of a building. What do you see? What do you hear? What do you see? The environment brings inspiration for many forms of Poetry. So, for this contest the format will be in the shape of a poem.

The theme for this Poetry contest is: Our Emera Town

It can be through the eyes of a human or the eyes of a Pokemon. Each side has a different view of the same world that they live in. Pokemon many have their own stories and adventures to tell in Emera Town, while humans may have their own side as well. Pick a side and create a poem that expresses the endless possibilities that exist with Emera Town. From the surrounding forests, to the beach, the lab, and even the Royal Tunnel or Ancient Cave.

Requirements

- The Poem must have a title [The title doesn't count as part of the word count.]
- You may submit only 1 poem.
- Each poem can be up to 150 words
- Keep the poems appropriate for all ages, don't go excessive with blood, guts, gore, language, ect. If you do then your poem won't be read or considered in the contest.
- Poems must be original and created from scratch by the member, don't take someone else's work and submit it as your own.

Prizes

There will be top three prizes for the stories entered.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place stories will get a flute combo pack (blue + black)

There will also be a consolation prize of 500 event points for everyone who participates in the contest.


Deadline

The deadline for submitting your poem is: October 2nd
The poems will be read and reviewed by us the staff and the finalist will be chosen.

FAQ

- How do I submit my poem to you?
A. You can create your poem in a separate program like Microsoft word and then copy and paste it as a PM message and send it directly to me (SilverLugia456)
- What if we are a few words over the word limited from the Requirements?
A. We do allow submissions that may be a few words over but if you have a poem over 160 words + then try to trim it down more. Word counts of 150-155 is fine.


Thanks for reading and we the staff look forward to reading the poems that you create. ^_^

Haven't written a poem in a long time (mostly because they're a bit *cough* darker *cough*)

Maybe I can try Haiku...
