Tenth Annual Speculative Fiction Limerick Contest

It’s time for our annual Fantasy Limerick contest!

Your task is to create an original limerick that has something to do with speculative fiction. It could be about a character, a series, an author, or whatever fits the theme. Here are the rules for creating a good limerick (quoting from this source). A limerick:

  • is five lines long
  • is based on the rhythm “da-da-DAH” (anapest meter)
  • has two different rhymes
  • Lines 1, 2, and 5 have three of those da-da-DAH “feet,” and rhyme with each other.

Second Annual Speculative Fiction Limerick Contest

Over a year ago we had our first Fantasy Limerick Contest. Let’s try it again!
Put your rhyming cap on and do us the favor of summarizing a favorite (or not so favorite) fantasy book or series in the traditional limerick style:

  • Five lines. Lines 1, 2, and five rhyme together, lines 3 and 4 make their own rhyme.
  • We won’t worry too much about meter. And let’s ignore all those elves from Nantucket.

Your limerick must be written by you for this contest (not published elsewhere). Here’s one to get you started:

There once was a hobbit who lived in a hole
Eschewing adventure and smoking a bowl.

First Annual Speculative Fiction Limerick Contest

I’m standing in for Justin again, as he continues to labor for his creative writing professor. He got a 100% on his first writing assignment!

Still going with the creative writing theme, I thought we should start a (regular?) Fantasy Limericks contest. Your job is to write an original fantasy-themed limerick. It could be kind of general, such as this one about a dragon which was written by Val Burns for The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form (OEDILF):

George cried, “I’ll fight the dragon, oh sire,
Though the reptile is huge and breathes fire.
