Form Over Substance Challenges
Welcome to the world of Form Over Substance! This forum has four challenges designed to familiarize today's poets with the various forms poetry can take. It all started with the Form Over Substance challenge, but has grown into additional challenges.
Form Over Substance Challenge
This challenge is a non-competitive challenge in which we present a different form each week, and encourage all FOS participants (FOS-ers) to try the form and post a link to their poem in the FOS thread. Also in the FOS thread you'll find information on iambic pentameter, including the acceptable substitutions employed in the meter.
Once Upon a Haiku
The Once Upon a Haiku challenge was created by Rainspirit (Renee) and is also non-competitive. To participate, simply write a haiku or senryu using the topic given by the last person who posted, and leave your own topic after your haiku. This is great fun, and we hope you'll all stop in and have fun with this haiku chain!
The Pantoum Kingdom
The Pantoum Kingdom is a special place dedicated to writing the world's longest pantoum. This is non-competitive, all for the love of it! Drop in and check it out!
The Limerick Gimerick challenge is brought to you by popular demand! This is a chain similar in structure to Once Upon a Haiku and The Pantoum Kingdom. Simply write a limerick using the "character" given by the last post and then leave your own character for the next limerick-er to use!
For more information on these challenges, please visit their respective threads below.
