The Social Poetry Contest is a fast-paced Collecting, Trading and Creating Event! Everyday from Sept 15 – 19 a new set of Magnetic Words will be released for ONE DAY ONLY! Group members will have the chance to grab a free Magnetic Word once an hour for 24 hours, and the gacha will also be available all day to collect as many words as you need to complete your Poem or Phrase before the next round begins!
At the start of the new round, the previous Magnetic Word Set will be RETIRED for the duration of the contest! Didn’t get what you needed? You’ll have to trade for it! (Do not worry — all word sets will be re-released after the contest for all your at home poetry making needs).
After you have your words, ADD them to your chosen [ free bird ] Social Poetry Contest Base and get ready to bring them to the main sim for display!
ALL SUBMITTED POEMS AND PHRASES will be on display for visitors to READ and VOTE for their favorite! Everyone who submits a poem will win a limited edition prize! The three poems with the most votes will also take home an extra special prize!
Word List #1 Available once an hour through 8PM SLT 9/16! Then it will be retired for the duration of the contest to make way for a new set of words!

You must fill in ALL blocks of your chosen base. Blocks may not be left empty. If more than one base is used for your poem, all blocks must be filled on those, as well.
You may only use words provided from the [ free bird ] Social Poetry Word Collections FFA and Gachas. You may mix and match your words to make longer words (ie. Sun and Day to make Sunday — please note, this will take up two word spots on your base.) You may trade for needed words in the [ free bird ] group. The challenge is to be creative with what is provided.
Word Set lists will not be available until the day they appear in the Free-For-All.
You MAY combine more than one base if needed, provided that your final LI count is not over 3LI.
