Greetings from Robert Fitzmorgan
I am issuing a challenge to the poets of Ansteorra. The prize is 1 POUND OF
AMBER. The conditions of the challenge are:
You must write a new poem specifically for this challenge.
The poem must be in a formal verse form in use before 1600 A.D.
Documentation is required.
Documentation should include:
A description of the form you are using.
The time and place in which this form was used.
Why you chose this form for this poem.
A copy of the poem.
I want to keep a copy of the documentation.
The judging will take place at Northkeep's Castellan Tourney in 2 weeks.
This challenge is not a part of competition to choose the next Bard of
I'm issuing this challenge to try and attract Bards to Northkeep who might
not normally come to Castellan, and because I want to hear some new poems.
What I'm looking for in the documentation is enough information that I could
write a poem using that form. I will judge based on the quality of the poem,
not the quality of the documentation.
I would also like to encourage others to issue challenges supporting arts
that they enjoy.
Barony of Northkeep
Minstral of Mooneschadowe
Bard of Nordsteorra
