About this challenge

The Prompt

Write a poem where each alternating line is from a different perspective, forming a cohesive conversation.

For this challenge, we would like you to create an original dialogue poem. A dialogue poem captures an evocative verbal exchange by alternating each line from a different perspective. The topic or scenario can be anything. The real challenge is to blend these alternating voices into a seamless, meaningful dialogue. Your poem should bring out the depth of the conversation, highlighting the contrasts and nuances of each perspective.

In order for your submission to qualify, it must be:

  • A dialogue poem. Each alternating line must be from a different perspective.
  • Submitted to Poets community. Choosing a community is a final step in the submission process. Your poem may be rejected for word count requirements if it is submitted to any other community.

The Prizes
