Poetry Month Challenge winners!

Posted by inkpop on April 23, 2010

On April 22 (the 40th Earth Day!), inkpop announced four winning poets of the Poetry Month Challenge. Launched April 15, the contest challenged inkpop site members to write a poem of any length using any one or several of these prompts:

My life
The best
So tell me
You’re on
Love is
Where is
Today I

inkpoppers took creativity to new heights with this challenge—some used one of the prompts in every line or stanza, while other incorporated all of the prompts into their poems. And some inkpoppers submitted more than one poem., the community site for aspiring teen writers, randomly selected these four winners:


Because I Broke Free by Shirley R. Kleiner

Today I Remembered ic#13 by RyanChristine12793

IC#13 – Protector by Komonio

ic#13 Clueless by xxdancewithme

Each of the four winners received two HarperTeen books of their choice. Visit the Poetry Month inkpop Challenge Forums thread to read all of the contest submissions. Read. Write. Connect.
