Hello out there you rhymers. THE STORYTELLER'S SCROLL is sponsoring "THE FRACTURED FAIRY TALE POETRY CONTEST, PART 2.
Eighteen months ago I held the first FRACTURED FAIRY TALE CONTEST. We had multiple entries and a lot of fun. SO... I'd like to repeat the contest this year.
Here are the simple rules:
Write a rhyming poem suitable for children to read of no more than 12 lines about two Fairy Tale characters that would never have met. See example below:
by Gayle C. Krause
Everyone knows the Snow Queen was mean,
the evilest sorceress you've ever seen.
She’d fallen asleep in her cradle of ice
when the kiss of a prince woke her up in a trice.
Her eyes flashed open. She narrowed her sight.
She gave the prince a terrible fright.
"Excuse me, my Queen. It seems I now know
in my confusion I've found the wrong Snow.
Your lips are so cold. This couldn't be right.
Please forgive my mistake for you're not Snow White.
Enter as many times as you wish by posting your poem in the comment section.
The winner will be announced on March 1st.
