So, basically all you need to do to enter this contest is write a poem between 7 and 12 lines which includes a bracelet, a leaf and water (hopefully will be a good challenge).

if you are going to enter then please say so below...

PRIZES...

1st place: 10 thank points
2nd place: 5 thank points
3rd place: 2 thank points

Honourable mention: 1 thank point

All places receive a critique.

tell you what, if you guys can get another person each to enter then I will still run it with the 3 placing's, if it's just you guys entering I'll just do 1 winner. Mainly because its more of a competition with more people

Why would someone do ur his for thank points? I don't think anyone is in need of thank points.

trust me, it's very common on here to receive thank points as a prize. Look at many of the other competitions and you'll see

These are just a few. anyways it's not a serious competition, just a bit of fun

Thought So also because writing a piece,involves your time and effort.. And seriously Im yet to know what it is and why it should be a reward for someone's effort.. Any answer please?

If you're only writing for rewards, you probably shouldn't write at all.

If you love writing poems, then writing something new and interesting should be a reward in itself and any time and effort spent should never be considered as time wasted, especially since any writing at all is a chance to improve.

The competition is just for fun and rewards, just the same, are mostly symbolic.
