🏅Poetry Dice Challenge 3000 [PDC3K] - Week 4 - Roll of the dicesteemCreated with Sketch.

in poetrydice •  last year


Whether you are taking a break from your own flow, or you desperately need pushed over the writer's block edge...this poetry challenge is for you. All of us coming together and sharing our versions of how the dice speak to us, is what makes this challenge so great. I hope future rolls of the dice will continue to be an inspiration for you and the ones close to you. Cheers! And thanks for all you do!


1rst Place - 5 STEEM

2nd Place - 3 STEEM
3rd Place - 1 STEEM
Bonus - 1 STEEM (for using MJ die)


  1. All 9 images must be referenced at least once, each. Images are interpreted loosely. How you interpret (or assign the image meaning) is up to you and does not count against you.
  2. Make your first tag "poetrydice," so I can find your entry.
  3. Include "Poetry Dice Entry:" in your title, so I know it's official.
  4. Put a link to your post in the comments section (below). Feel free to message me your link in steemit.chat (optional).
  5. Please submit no more than 3 entries. If you wish to write more than 3 poems per roll, that is fine. I just ask that you clearly label which ones are your official entries.

Deadline to enter contest is next Saturday at Midnight PST (UTC-7)
Winners will be announced weekly

NEW - "Mary Jane" die (optional)

To use, just add as many references to “mary-jane” into your poem as the dice reflect. For example, this week you can reference "mary-jane," in any form, (3) times in your poem. This is because the die shows (3) "mary-jane leaves".


*Disclaimer: The winners are based on the entries which I think are the best. I am not saying anyone is a bad poet, I will not say that. Instead, I seek to offer you my encouraging and supportive feedback as a fellow poet. My opinion takes into consideration many things, including:

  • grammar / Does it make sense?
  • flow / Are there any unclosed loopholes that leave me confused?
  • rhythm
  • rhyme
  • imagery / Can I imagine the pictures the words paint?
  • feeling / Does it cause a reaction?
  • and emotional pull / Do I suddenly have an opinion?

Want to Guest or Co-Judge?

Two or three heads are better than one, so if you would like an opinion too, please let me know and we can chat up which poems we like best for the week and why. Comment below or message me in chat if you wish to remain anonymous...

Mary Jane? I have heard of a lot of synonyms for marijuana, but this is a first time I have heard someone call it like that ^^

*P.S. (unless I missed it) u forgot to mention the prize pool, assuming it's the same, but for the newcomers ;)


Yes I did forget! thank you! And yes~ Marijuana by another other name would stink as sweet....xo


I don't even partake, and I have been aware of that nickname for ages! LOL!

There we go, finally. I think I got it right, though post posting it won't let me change my first tag, but the tag is there, I forgot the rules, focused on the dice. Think we're good to go...

You are welcome! So glad I could unite dice and poetry :-)

Hello, I am a new steemer and I thought it would be cool to enter a poetry contest as I love poetry, but I'm kind of confused how this works? Thanks.


Just make a poem in which all the dices shown on the picture are included. As stated, interpretation is loosely.


What @droucil said. Thank you for responding. It's loose for sure. Just make sure i can find your poem :D XO


This entry is awesome! Thanks so much for slamming your skillz down on the PDC3K this week Babe! :-*


TY! Your contest gives me the inspiration to write a poem :). As I love to play with the words, this contest is my favorite one so far! Having a chance to win is just a bonus.
