For this winter Wingless Dreamer Publisher has decided to come up with another interesting theme for our beloved writers. Everything in nature is made up of these five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Spirit/space (closest to god). All you have to do is pick any one of the elements and write a poem on it. All the participants will be judged on the basis of the following criteria:
Relevance to the theme – 50
Creativity/Style and Originality – 30
The coherence of form and structure (harmony of words, presentation) – 10
Clarity of imagery and language – 10
TOTAL – 100

The competition is open to anyone aged 18 or over.
Poems may be on any subject and in any form or style as long as it goes well with the theme for the contest.
They must be typed and not longer than 20 lines (excluding title).
Remember one poem submission per poet.
Poems should be in English, must be the entrant’s own work, and should not have been published or accepted for publication elsewhere (including online), should not have won another poetry competition, or be the translated work of another poet.
All poems are judged anonymously and should not bear your name, or any other form of identification.
Our judges will read all entries.
No changes can be made to a poem once it has been submitted.
The decision of the judge is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
