The most requested item in music that I get is for good, romantic but appropriate music for Christian weddings. We are beginning an album project to fill this need! We are opening it up for people to submit poetry, and give folks a chance to become a part of this!
Those of you who remember, for the last a cappella CD we had a contest for poetry which I then set to music. The winner received $100. We are doing so again in the month of July!
This time we have a more specific topic. We are looking for wedding/marriage oriented poetry. We are slowly working towards an album that will have music that can be sung at weddings, romantic events such as anniveraries or engagements etc.
- Think in terms of what would sound “singable.” This is not a rule but a guideline, but to have a better chance of winning, you would want to keep your poetry to lines that have a natural lilt to them. Have a poem that you just haven’t been able to find a tune for but you know would make a great song? That’s probably a good choice!!
- Simply email the text of your poem to email@example.com to enter the contest. It does not need to be in a special format. Please include your name and general age category.
- If you are selected as a finalist, you will receive an email to the address from which you sent the text.
- The contest will end Tuesday, July 31, at 12:00 midnight EST.
We look forward to your entries!
