Winner for Prose Contest:

Love awaits  Our lips did not touch the day I read him my written daydreams, even though he leaned so close to me I breathed him in. I was saving it… For that perfect day.
  We did not dance that night nor did we kiss, even though our bodies shivered in anticipation and our hearts burned like blazing fire under our chests. He was saving it… For that perfect day.
  It finally came, he finally asked… the question concealed in plain sight in our every conversation. It was worth so much more than wording an answer.
  Eyes only. We kissed.

Winners for Poetry Contest:


1st place: A Telescope for PolarisThe strands of my percussion strings
turn dull in the sight of
your subconscious bearings.
You are like the hail
who threatened to come;
an itch
I can’t quite place.
And I write letters
to the archers
and the mermaids-
hoping they’d bring me a swallow
to hunt the raven-like insect
whispering nevermore
in the recesses of my hair.
[So far they haven’t replied yet.]
Thus I’ve found
I could distract myself with pastimes
I’ve come to name as habits--
like drinking the tepid water
of other people’s drudgery,
while I ponder on what sorts of poems
you wrote
when she called herself yours.
It must have been quite nice,
while the coffee was newly brewed.
And I see how clouds
could pass for stars some nights;
why cicadas sing
and nightingales don’t.
I see your eyes
and how they see things differently,
how I want them to know
a little part of what they don’t.
And in staring in them
as if I could knit my universe
straw by straw, I’ve reali

2nd Place: The Tale of Tamas Lin

He met her in the winter
When the wind whipped through the trees,
Beneath the snowfall and the starlight,
Un'ner the shadow of the leaves.
A fair and regal maiden
With hair as black as night,
Pale skin of glowing moonbeams,
And eyes of sapphires bright.
She found him there in winter
Amid the rocks and snow.
His booted leg was twisted;
The brigands struck the blow.
She held him then and kissed him
And nursed his wounds so dire,
And stole him to the fairy court
Beyond the Ross’ shire.
Three days he dined in excess,
Three days he drunk the wine,
Three days he danced with beauties
In courtly green attire.
Yet long were the mornings,
Longer still the nights,
For by the Yuletide’s dawning
Ten years had made their flight.
Aggrieved was dear Seonaidh,
His breast grew ill and tight,
For those that dine with fairy folk
Can ne’er leave their sight.
Twelve years, he passed, then twenty
As servant, then as swain,
But best he served the company
And knighthood did attain.
But lo

1st Place
:iconnot-an-emo-girl942: not-an-emo-girl942
We lost the stars,
Their brilliant faces fading
Into the sea of yellow
Stitched onto our chests.
We lost the sun,
Her warm embrace
Frozen to the arms
Of concrete walls.
We lost the sky,
Found it filled
With Jewish ashes.
We lost the world
And they stole everything else
2nd Place
:iconaramiro: Aramiro
"Love is War"
We lost an arm
We lost


Take a look!!!

Hello, I was wondering if this group could help me get word out to writers about a current 1000 point contest I'm holding to help the literature community a bit. It's not the traditional contest and it'd be easier to link you to it then to try explaining: fav.me/d73jscd
Thank you! :)
