DailyLItRecognition's Contest - LAST DAYS

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 10, 2014, 5:02 AM
Tumblr l Facebook l Twitter l DLR

Get your entries in before its too late!! Featuring someone's work is the highest form of compliment on here!!
 

The Contest

 

Your mission is to create a mock anthology/ DLR feature around a theme of your choice. A minimum for four, maximum of five pieces is required. But that’s not all – you must also explain why you chose those pieces, and how they fit together as part of your theme. There are, however, a few caveats:

 

- Only one piece may be your own, if you so desire. This is not a requirement, but an option.

- All of your chosen pieces must be from different authors.

- Your pieces may be any literature you desire – all prose, all poetry, or a mixture of both.
- The title of your journal should be the title of your mock-anthology.

 

All submissions will be through journals, so that literature thumbs can be used. Entrants will be judged on the overall cohesiveness, and how well they explain their choice of features. We will not be judging on aesthetic layout, but you are free to get fancy with your entry – just know that it doesn’t grant you any bonus points! There will be an extra placing slot for best looking feature though.

Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
I am a poet. I have put my hand to other things, but I have always been a poet.

My personal writings are angsty and sometimes dark, but my professional pieces are a bit lighter. I am categorized, like many, as "undefined". I used to consider myself a literalist - simple metaphors where necessary, but primarily, painting easy to understand pictures in easy to read pieces, but my life is changing and so is my voice. Who knows where I will end up next, if anywhere.

I started writing before I knew how to properly spell at 7 and it has suckt with me throughout my adult life.

I wrote my first poem about my new sister at 7 and finished my first children's story at 8. I was published at 9 and dropped off until I was 13.

I had my first adult publishing experience at 19 when a piece of mine was inked in a local paper. I continued writing methodically and religiously until my mid 20's where my personal life took precedence and I had to set my pen down. I did not write again for several years.

I am now in my 30's and the lit bug is secured with two hands. I will work diligently to ensure it stays where it is.
