Writers Prompts & Challenges
All Forum members are invited to participate in these writing exercises. All that's required, if you choose to participate, is to write and post one (1) stanza of four, six or eight lines as guided by the prompt. Writer's prompts will be posted here fortnightly. Comments and constructive feedback would be welcome by the participants unless they expressly state, "Not for Critique". Let's have some fun.
Poetry of those Gone Before
Poetry of those members who are no longer with us. As we search these boards, members are invited to post Friend's works here so they are gathered into one place and easily accessible to all.
Bush Poetry Competition
This is for forum members only. We will determine a topic every two months and call for submissions. Our honourable judge, A. Judi Cater, will provide positive feedback on your writing skills which can only be to your benefit.
Many of our old diggers from WW2 are well into their 80's now. Often members of the Forum contribute poems about the wars, Australia's contribution and the importance of freedom. Print out poems from this section and leave them down your local RSL in a display folder for people to read as many of the old diggers appreciate bush poetry. So remember, if you post here, it may be published in a RSL, so make sure your copyright notice and name is between the title and first line of the poem.
