Ello Minimalist Poetry Competition Winners!
I'm super excited to announce the winners of the first ever Ello minimalist poetry contest.
I need to perface the list of winners by saying that if you didn't win, it doesn't mean your poem wasn't awesome. There were over 500 entries (you can read them all here), filled with hilarity, terror, boredom, lust, astute observations on the minutiae of everyday life, and much more. All in 12 words or less.
The choice was so hard that, rather than choose just one winner, the judges chose six.
I love you
is just code
For the demon possessing you.
we used too much
the cigarettes are gone
in the garden,
have been found
The butler did it...
In the pantry...
Despite it all,
All six winners will receive an Ello T-shirt as well as fame and glory because they can now tell their grandchildren that they actually won a poetry contest!
A big Ello thanks to our panel of judges:
@huckgee, Toy Artist
@henrycorra, Documentary Filmmaker
Thank you everyone for participating, and keep writing!
