The very first Two Heartbeats Competition: Two Voice Poems

May 30, 2020

FREE WRITING

Howdy Howdy Howdy,
I don't know about you all but in Tahoe we are getting a lot of rain. And so I've been writing a bunch and I decided that it's competition time (Whoo-hoo). I WILL BE HOSTING MY FIRST COMPETITION (yayyyy). I'm basing the type around my namesake, Two heartbeats. I would like 2 voice poems, Two different lifestyles that may or may not share the same plot or personality.

RULES:
  • Must be a two voice poem. In order to do that title new characters:
(Enter character name #1)
(Enter Character Name #2)
(Both)
See my piece "You are beautiful" for an example: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/165833/version/327912
  • That's it that's your only rule. All words have meaning so if you write explicitly, that's how I'm going to read it.
PRIZES: 
There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place prizes, (Honorable mentions may exist depending on number of submissions.)
  1. FIRST PLACE: 4 peer reviews on any piece of their choice. A link  and praise in my message board.
  2. SECOND PLACE: 2 peer reviews on any piece of their choice.
  3. THIRD PLACE: 1 Peer review on any piece of their choice
  4.   HONORABLE MENTIONS: If applied will be 1 peer review on a piece of MY choice.
The winning piece will have a emotion jerking story and will cut through what I call the noise. The rest is all up to you.
You may submit pieces you've previously written.

THERE WILL BE NO HASHTAG.
To submit: comment below with the link to your piece. I will then go, like and comment, and shoot you a follow.
DEADLINE: June 5th.
Winners announcement: June 10th (If not before)

    replying: and i love and appreciate what you wrote on PaigeM’s post as well. i’m infuriated that some people would share the sentiment, and that she would write that in response to a prompt for black lives matter. i’m so hurt and disappointed that people even liked it. but anyways, thank you for speaking out with me. <3

    This format is so interesting and I didn't want to waste it on writing a romance! There's so many possibilities and I really wanted to explore them. I hope it's okay that it's a little vague? It's meant to be ominous and I thought giving the astronaut a name would ruin it. I hope you like it!

    so this is a piece I did a few days ago; is it okay if I don't have the character names? I distinguish the two voices by italicized and non-italicized. I can change it if you need to, just lemme know :)
