NaPo Time Traveler Contest
Calling all poets! We all know NaPo is a little more about getting poetry out than editing poetry ~ but this contest asks you to grab a poem from the past and bring it into the future using your powers of creativity.
Your Challenge: Take the very first NaPo poem from your NaPo thread, and make it into a totally new poem. If you would like, you can even use the first NaPo poem from a previous year! The final poem should be clearly inspired by the first poem, and I'd love if you could even re-use a phrase or line from the original one, but it should also clearly be a new poem.
To Enter: Post a comment with your old and new poem enspoilered below by 8 PM EST April 30. You can submit up to two entries. Please indicate if your poem has mature content.
Judgement Criteria: Poem will be judged by me on 1) Clear link to old poem 2) Use of Creativity 3) Use of Poetic Devices 4) Impact 5) If you utilize roman numerals that will greatly decrease your chances of winning but won't eliminate you completely from consideration
Prizes: First place will get 300 points + some sort of delightful bird or cat doodle by me.
