Acrostic Poems

This month's writing competition requires you to write an Acrostic Poem about one of the character's feature in Isobelle Carmody's works.

An acrostic poem uses the first letters in the name as the prompt to use words or form sentences that describe the character. For example, if we use 'Jik':

Juvenile
Inquisitive
Kind

Or:

Just a young boy
In the clutches of the Herders
Knows that he is not a freak

Entry requirements:
- Entries are open from now until the 1st May
- There's no word limit (but it is an acrostic poem, so please keep it within reason)
- You can enter up to 3 poems for this competition
- Have fun with it! While we leave it up to you how you utilise the letters in word, judges are likely to assess how well you use words to portray the character, tell a story or make 'em laugh. Rhyming the lines may be used to win favour as well :P

Pointage:
1st: 20
2nd: 15
3rd: 10
Entry: 3 (for 3 poems, a maximum of 9 entry points)

Judges: Daywatcher, Tanya and Sam16

    I wrote 3 poems ages ago and thought I had entered them but I had checked the wrong box! Can they still be accepted or is it too late? I'm sorry if this is very inconvenient. :-/
