    Alright, for anyone interested, Write me a Shakespearean sonnet but using iambic meter. 100 % iambic. And I'm also looking for clarity within the poems. The volta can take place anywhere from line 9 to line 13.

    Topic: your choice.

    Surprise me.

    Poems due December 21.

    ----- Judging may take longer this time.

    Edit: I still owe two comments to the winner of my previous contest. I shall have them done before this one is over.

    How lovely from you to ask, thank you.

    I'm doing good job with free verse, prose and poetry forms which don't depend on rhyming. I prefer to be on my ground. Your kind suggestion is greatly appreciated.
