WEEKLY POETRY CHALLENGE STARS | TYPE OF CHALLENGE No. 197: Specific Form – Tanka

Just a reminder that the October 13, 2020 poetry challenge will feature the Carrot Ranch Rodeo poetry challenge! Carrot Ranch is famous for 99-word flash fiction, so I created a form called the Double Ennead, a 99 syllable form to challenge your word skills! There’s a few surprises with this form and the chance to win $25 for the top prize from Carrot Ranch.com. Mark your calendars!

What did you all think about the tanka tutorial? Did it help you understand the pivot in tanka? Once you understand the pivot concept, you shouldn’t have any more issues with tanka poetry. The form has few restrictions in theme, and of all the Japanese forms, I think it is the most fun to write.

You all wrote some excellent poetry this week. Here’s all the poetry stars who joined in:
