Contest Update
Just a few days left to go! Get your entries in NOW!

A recent discovery of the very innovative idea from Alex Valentine on Four Line Long Poems has prompted a mini-revolution here on deviantART as 3wyl and I plotted and schemed to create something not dissimilar to SixWordStories. Thus, FourLinePoems was born! It's a group that's completely open to everyone and anyone who would like to join and the exciting news is that, with its launch, we are announcing the first Four Line Poem Competition!


:bulletblack: Contest Open: 15th December 2012, Midnight PST.
:bulletblack: Contest Close: 15th January 2013, Midnight PST.
:bulletblack: Winners Announcement: After 1st February

Rules & Examples

Four Line Poems are exactly that - just four lines long!

:bulletgreen: One entry per person.
:bulletgreen: Entries must be newly submitted to deviantART, in Literature Format: FAQ #79: How do I submit art?
:bulletgreen: Entries must contain only four words. Only one contraction, such as "Don't", is allowed.
:bulletgreen: The Author's Description on the deviation must include: FourLinePoems' Competition (Or you can copy and paste: :devfourlinepoems:' Competition)

There are many examples of how a Four Line Poem works, but, simply, it is four words presented clearly and succinctly that tell a story or make a statement.

For example:

              Nine                         Play
              Nine                         Ball
              Nine                         Like
              Help                         Pele

Traditionally, each word is just four letters long and you can stick to that pattern if you wish, but it's not a requirement. :D


6 Months Premium Membership to DeviantART & 500 :points: & Front Page Feature at FourLinePoems each for the Top Three Winners.
3 Months Premium Membership to DeviantART & 250 :points: each for Ten Honourable Mentions.
News Feature for all winners through FourLinePoems and communityrelations, as well as from 3wyl and Kaz-D.

How To Enter?
