The Summer Solstice is upon us, Praise be to Chotec! My intention was to start the contest a few weeks ago, but we'll keep going with having two Poetry contests per year roughly coinciding with the Solstices. This means there is going to be a lot of overlap with the next short story contest. I think we have enough creativity and enthusiasm for two contests, so this should not be a problem. If the overlap becomes a problem, I will make adjustments in future contests. The Theme There is none. Choose whatever theme you like so long as it is related to Lizardmen, Seraphon, Salamanders or Saurian Ancients. The Rules There are none. (Apart from the following)(So in actual fact there are some rules, I lied to you, I am sorry) -Keep your poem to an artistic minimum. Word count wont be stressed about too much in here, but ideally the poem should be more than two lines. -Keep it anonymous. Don't use your own name in the poem or use someone else's name throw them off the scent -Keep Lizardmen in the story or some aspect of their world / lore. -Keep visuals and images to a minimum or none at all this is a poetry competition. -Keep em coming, you may enter as many times as you wish. -Multiple entries are allowed from the same person! The winner will be decided by public vote at the end of the deadline - July 31st 2020, the winter solstice, by midnight US Central TIme. Please send a private message to me, @Scalenex to send a submission. I aim to do these twice a year. Next one will likely be around the Winter Solstice in honor of Huanchi.
