[Mortified Penguin] - "True Magic"

There once was an old witch and an elderly wizard
They sat huddled alone, during a fierce blizzard
The power was gone and with candles around
The glimmer in her eye reflected a beauty most profound
Now, they couldn’t use spells or do tricks
Nor could they use incantations or wield sorcerous sticks
But the situation wasn’t all that tragic
For when they kissed… it was truly magic.




1 - Only people who have Won an official Elftown Poetry/Prose Competition before can enter. If you have not won a competition, then you can enter at Magic Written Contest for Newbies

2 - NO STEALING LITERATURE. The prose/poetry MUST be written by you. If anyone is found to be stealing someone else's work they will be disqualified from this and all future official written contests. The piece that you enter should be new, and must not have been submitted to a contest previously.

3 - No fan-fiction in this contest. We accept that you may be inspired somewhere, but if you write a story with a land called Marmia containing Baslam the lion, it's not going to cut it with us. Original work here please.

4 - If you're submitting a prose entry, the story must be no less than 500 words and no more than 3000. Obviously, verse entries can be far shorter, but certainly not longer.

5 – No pornography or excessive violence please. Use your common sense as to what would be acceptable and what not, but the crew's decision in this matter is final.

6 - You may submit one poem and/or one story to this contest (but not two poems or two stories).

7 - Quality restrictions. If you want us to put effort into reading the story/poem, put effort into writing it. Stories/poems with exceptionally bad spelling and/or grammar will be disqualified. If your story/poem isn't going to make the cut, we'll put a comment underneath the entry saying so.

What will we be expecting? Creativity!



Magic. It's a very broad theme, so you've got lots of artistic license. Your story can be of someone casting a spell, or of a clearly magical object or creature. That means, some kind of spell or magical effect should be obvious in the story. Do not simply enter a story about magical creatures standing there. We want action! If you're not sure about your idea, ask in the comments, and one of the crew will give you an answer.

Entries not following the theme will be removed.

2008-05-30 [itoe]: Does having 8 daily poems qualify me as a veteran?

2008-05-30 [SilverFire]: No, since they're not a an official elftown poetry or prose competitions.

2008-05-30 [itoe]: Okay then. I'll enter the newbie competetion then. ^^

2008-05-30 [SilverFire]: Good question, though. Maybe next time we'll make an exception for master poets. :P

2008-06-02 [Linderel]: Hmm, I say nah to that. Like stated, DP has nothing to do with official contests, so even Master Poets should not be given anything that could resemble special treatment :P

2008-08-20 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: Would i qualify as a vetran as winner of one of the creature marathon text sections?

2008-08-20 [SilverFire]: Yup. :)

2008-08-20 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yay! ^_^

2008-09-08 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: still open? I thought the deadline was August 30th.. has it been changed again?

2008-09-13 [SilverFire]: Changed "again"? No, it's only been changed once, and that was to the end of September. Maybe you got mixed up with another contest deadline?

2008-09-22 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: maybe but it's more likely i saw 30th and just made up a month... it happens!
