Welcome, Welcome...

:blackrose:Morbid-Poets is a group dedicated to showcasing poetry (and prose) of a darker nature. Because while other poets like writing about the beauty of nature and what it feels like to fall in love, we like to write about the beauty in cemeteries and what it feels like to go insane. We also accept poetry/prose dealing with mythology.

:new: If you would like to be featured on the club frontpage, please see this blog entry for instructions:…

General Guidelines:

:bulletblack: Any and all types of poetry are accepted, from free verse to haiku, as long as it is of a darker nature. We also accept poetry dealing with a mythological subject.

:bulletblack: Please respect other members. Critique is one thing, flaming and being rude is another.

:bulletblack: Membership is automatically approved and open to everyone, but works must be approved before they appear in the gallery.

:bulletblack: Please submit to the correct folders. What should go in which folder is listed below.

:bulletblack: If you would like to affiliate with us, just send a request. I'll affiliate with any writer's group, as well as any dark art groups.

Gallery Folder Guidelines:

:bulletblack: General Insanity is for works that don't fit into any of the other labeled folders.

:bulletblack: Morbid Love is for love poems with a bit of a dark twist to them.

:bulletblack: Murder and Suicide. That should be self-explanatory. For all poems dealing with the want of death, or a more murderous subject. Basically all poems dealing in death.

:bulletblack: Paranormal is for, yes, things dealing with the paranormal. So, ghosts, demons, The Devil himself. You get the idea.

:bulletblack: Mythology, also self-explanatory. Keep in mind this is different from the Paranormal folder.

:bulletblack: Haiku and Small Poems. Anything that is equal to or less than seven or so lines should go in here.

:bulletblack: Deep Sadness is the folder for all poems dealing with sorrow and depression.

:bulletblack: Short Stories and Prose. Stories and drabbles that stand by themselves, and only first chapters or prologues of chaptered works! Please don't submit every single chapter. And please, no fanfiction!
So, in an attempt to drum up activity around here (and hey, it is Halloween!) I'm issuing all of you members an itty bitty challenge.

Haiku, a small poem made up of three lines with 5-7-5 syllables, respectively. Usually these poems are about nature, but I want you to take these three little lines and make them as creepy and morbid as possible.

Now, I know Halloween is only a week away (founder lady has been busy), but don't worry! I'm going to give you an entire month to write these bad boys, so the deadline is November 21, 2012.

You're each allowed TWO entries. Members will be allowed to vote for their favorite, and I will personally pick my favorite of the bunch for a mod's choice. Both winners will get a feature on the club frontpage and a month's paid membership to dA. You give me horror and I give you dA membership.

Please submit all entries to the Halloween haiku folder, which will be going up shortly! :)

Can we have a "Morbid/Dark Humor" folder?

I am absolutely thrilled to be here. I have quite a few poems I would like to add.

Sorry, I think I should have submitted my two pieces into "Prose" instead of "General Insanity"... please move them into the correct folder if you think that is necessary.
