LoreHound.com’s Haiku Contest

Posted by on March 29, 2010 - 19 Comments »

Ahh, the haiku.  This classic poetic structure allows almost anyone to amuse and entertain.  It enables the writer to be short and sweet, while still getting their point across.  It is also quite possibly the easiest idea to teach; three lines comprised of a maximum 17 syllables.  That’s all we expect from you, Lore Hounds.

Three measly lines of creativity.

Your entry (feel free to do more than one) can cover a wide range of topics.  Fair game includes what you expect from us, gaffes made in the recent video coverage, games we enjoy and play (WoW, STO, GA, DDO, etc), your feelings towards the site layout or even a rant on how stupid this contest is (ex. Best. Idea. Ever).

You can submit your haiku to our Twitter, or leave a comment on this very post.  Be sure to leave a legitimate e-mail address in case you win!

We’ll be selecting whichever haiku entertains us the most come next Monday,  April 5.  Here’s what you can win:

1st Place: Lord of the Rings Online Collector’s Edition

2nd Place: Sandbox Tiger loot card

3rd Place: Slashdance loot card
