This month's writing competition requires you to write an Epitaph to one of the character's in Isobelle Carmody's works.
An Epitaph is usually a short inscription that is written about a person when their life has passed on. It can be praise, or a reflection on one's life.Entry requirements:
- Entries are open from now until the [strike]31st May[/strike] 14th June
- As this is an Epitaph, it should not exceed more than 200 words, or more than 5 lines.
- You can enter up to 3 poems for this competition
- Though an epitaph is generally written for people who have moved on from one life to the next, it does not need to be all 'doom & gloom' just a few words that you think the character will be remembered for. The character does not already have to have passed away. Judges will be looking for how well you captured the essence of the character, but of course, a fun / light hearted comment can work just as well as a deep and meaningful.Pointage:
