Commaful Holiday Poetry Contest


Feel and share the Holiday spirit with our Holiday Poetry Contest! The year 2021 is drawing to a close but not before the most joyous season of the year. 'Tis the time to be jolly as they say. And 'tis the season for giving.

It's also the season for carols, warm hugs, snuggling, snow, and so much more! In line with this, our next challenge is a poetry contest wherein you get to bring out the joys and sorrows of the holiday season!

What do you love about the holidays? What's one thing you could write a poem about? Is it about Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa's elves, Frosty the Snowman, the grinch? Or do you prefer to write more about the season where everything is white, the spirit of giving is in full force, and family and friends gather together for the holidays.

Or how about writing about the sorrows of the holiday season? Perhaps about two people who are far from each other and cannot celebrate the holidays together? Or maybe a sad poem about how Christmas couldn't happen because of a tragedy in the elf toy factory?

Whichever it is, the challenge is to write a poem about it! No specific format required as long as it's a poem and that it follows the holiday theme!

By definition, a poem is a piece of writing that partakes of the nature of both speech and song that is nearly always rhythmical, usually metaphorical, and often exhibits such formal elements as meter, rhyme, and stanzaic structure.

Are you up for the challenge this holiday season? Join and start writing now!
