Poetry is a pretty big box. Unless that 'theme' is topical and not structural, it would be hard to make work. Even then.

I think that about sums it up.

How frustrating.

Wait, what?

Look what you people have done.

I'll take over if absolutely needed, I just need to know the gist of what we're doing.

may i take over? i really want to, and it means i cant participate, so i can be completely impartial

i warn you, i will be a total dictator, ive already got the guidlines in my head as well as themes, i say themes plural because i think it should have more than one theme.

of course, if you think i would be totally unfit i can understand...

Why? I think you seem to be the best to be in charge of it.

Stress moment, sorry.

This thread was to gauge interest and gather ideas. Already there've been negative comments and obvious disinterest.

I'll judge, alongside lil bitchiness, but we need another judge before anything goes ahead.

I will judge, if you want.

Presuming this post isn't as invisible as my others.

I saw the Alan Partridge one.

Seriously though, I think VVD would be a good judge.

That'd be great, VVD yes

Three's enough, I think. Usually we'll set the thread up for participants to submit their pieces, leave it open for a decided amount of time and then Milla will close it. The judges assess the submissions privately and then order them from best to 'worst', then share their decisions with one another. I think there's usually a winner and a runner up.

I don't know if you can think of another way to do it, but please feel free to make a suggestion.

Nah, that sounds ok.

Maybe as well as the joint decision, each judge could mention a favourite line or stanza, or something like that, from poems outside of the winning one and the runner[s]-up. Just to make it a bit less of a first past the post thing, and maybe more interesting.
