Chinese Couplet Chop Chop Contest

Posted by Sally Clark on Monday, April 11, 2016
Chinese Couplet Chop Chop Contest
 
From poet, Wanda Sue Parrot –
 
“As inventor of the Chinese Couplet, I would be delighted if this tiny poetic form should go viral—like around the world so it becomes an international phenomenon.
 
Here is how it will work. I do the publicity. The panel will choose at least one winner from each state represented. State winners get certificates and their entries advance to the national level, from which the best overall winner is named Chop Chop Champion. He/she will win a minimum of $100. Two Chop Sticks will each win a minimum of $50. Prizes may be increased at the panel’s discretion depending on how total fees received. If there is any money left in the pot after awards are made, judges will divide the balance in a six-way split.
.
The three-line Chinese Couplet should be a complete piece of work:
(Example: chop chop is metaphor for cosmetic surgery.)
line 1 being the Opening that introduces the problem:              chop chop
line 2 is the Middle drama:                                                     hag’s sag
line 3 the Ending solves it:                                                     new you                                                                

ENTRY FEE: $5 per page—no limit to number of pages allowed AWARDS: $100/$50/$50 DEADLINE: May 15, 2016
HOW TO SUBMIT (no electronic submissions)—Type between one and ten Chinese Couplets on an 8-1/2 x 11 in. white page. Put your name and contact information, including e-mail, in upper right corner and send one copy with $5 per page entry fee via snail mail. Send check payable to Wanda Sue Parrott Literary Fund to: Chinese Contest, Post Office Box 1821, Monterey, CA 93942. Winners will be notified by e-mail and announced in the June 2016 edition of The Diploemat.
