Sign up here for a Duet!

Post by brianedwards » Tue Oct 04, 2011 11:58 pm

Yes, time for a new competition. Take your poetic partner by the hand and get, err, dueting . . .

So, the basic idea is that we pair up regular Beginner posters with regular Experienced posters to collaborate on a poem of their own choosing in any way they wish. Discussion started here.

Sign up here to let us know if you're in, stating whether you'd like to be considered Beg or Exp.

This should be fun . . .

I think this could be neat. I'll give it a go. Sign me up for beginner, I suppose.

What a great idea. I'm definitely in, can I be an experienced beginner?

Go on then, against my better instincts - count me in too.

An absolute beginner.

I'm in.

If anyone is unsure about whether to declare as "beginner" or "experienced", just say so. In the end we will have more of one than the other, so a pool of "floaters" will be handy.

Suzanne I'll put you down as Exp but if we are oversubscribed on Exp, would you have any objection to pairing up with me someone from Exp?

I'll give it a try as an experienced, but I don't really mind who I get paired with...

Maybe they're worried it'll just turn into a private crit-session.

Maybe the 'Beginners' don't explore this site - maybe they don't know this thread is here?
