Alright folks, I have been distracted lately, but I am back on track! & I must say, I am really, really, happy with my Co-Founders! You guys are so fantastic, and I just wanted to thank you publicly and tell all of our members to applaud you.
There has been some confusion as to what means what and so where does what go. Haha. These are in alphabetical order and may refer to another folder in the description. Do not panic, but look at the referred folder's description for further clarification. Don't worry, that all makes it sound more complicated than it truly is.
All the rest If it does not fit into any of the below, then it goes here. Only then. This folder is going to get full fast, but we can slow it down by checking out the other folders first.
Children For children. About children. I don't think there will be too many of either. Good?
Comedy Is it humours? Are you trying to make me laugh? Or are you laughing?
Horror For the scary and the scared. One of us should be.
Lyrics There is a song meant to go with it. It does not matter if the song exists or not.
Mature Not for mature ideas but for mature content. If you had to put a warning on it by dA standards, it goes here. Violence, sex, excessive swearing, slurs, ect.
Prompts They will be coming soon. It has to be fresh content, inspired from our journal prompts. Put our logo in your comments and which prompt inspired the piece.
Rhymes If you have a format that you made up. If it has rhyming and meter but does not fit into our traditional folder.
Romance and Love Does it make you feel warm and fuzzy or for your heart to ache? This is a folder not only about romance, but for 'other love' as well. That you feel for family, friends, or pizza.
Sci-Fi Is it about a world not our own? Where things are possible that are not in our reality?
Spiritual and Religious Often a big part of people's lives. Soul, spirit, energy, God, god?
To-be-Critiqued Would you like one of our intelligent and charming staff members to
praise your poetry and hand out pointers? Note that you only get one submission a month. & since we are taking time out to read and critique, make sure to be polite in your reply.
Traditionally Structured Think sonnet, haiku, limerick, cento, sestina (which are awesome! poetry.about.com/od/poems/l/bl… this is a classic one, so very old, but how cool is that?). This is a great chance to explore the vast world of poetry, to challenge yourself, to find inspiration and impress yourself.
Tragedy Woe is me! Tragedy is sad, sombre, "based on human suffering," "person destined through a flaw of character or conflict with some overpowering force, as fate or society, to downfall or destruction. "
Has-been-Critiqued Simply where we put poems after they have been critiqued to keep ourselves organized. I've been thinking about then putting them in their best-suited folders after, but that is not for you to worry about.
Featured Again, this is for us, please do not submit to this folder. This is for future contest winners, and for me and my staff to put our favourites.
This is for our logo contest. There are very few rules. It has to have We-Poets on it and legible. Submit up to three. If we need help, we will put up a journal. Depending on how many submissions, we may put all in a journal, or just or favourite runner-ups.
Prizes= Features in all staff journals. In this journal. Shout-out on our Guidelines page, there simply because it is at the top of our page and the place most likely to be seen. Feature in PoeticalCondition, RiseandBe's group. And also we will ask our other affiliated groups if they would do a feature. You also will be the first person in our feature folder! We would not put your logo, but rifle through your poetry and pick from there.
Message your entries to the group directly with a link to your submission.
I will put the Deadline at February seventh. I do understand that we are a group of poets, and so this may not be your strong point.
I hope tons of you put your best forward!!
We are good on that point. When we need new folder moderators or any other staff, we will either check back to those volunteers who raised their hands in our older journal entry or do another ad. We are considering adding one more critique-er, but at this moment it is not definite and we are only considering the need.
I think that should clarify all points for the moment. Any other questions, concerns or ideas, comment below.
