Celebrate Pi(e) Week with us by using the digits of pi (3.1415926….) to construct a poem! You can choose from one of three forms:
1) Write a poem in “Pi-Lish,” where the digits of pi determine the number of letters in each word.
2) Write a “Pi-Ku” where the digits of pi determine the number of syllables in each line.
3) Write a “Pi-em” where the digits of pie determine the number of words in each line.
The length of the poem is up to you, but it needs to include the first three digits of pi (3.14), according to the form you selected. All entries must be your own original work. Prof. Warren Baker and Prof. Jim Ellefson of the Professional Writing Program will be judging this competition to help us to find Champlain College’s “Pi-et” Laureate, and Prof. Eric Ronis will give a reading of all submissions. Each original submission earns five entries to the Pi(e) Week grand prize drawing. Each Judge’s Choice winner will earn an additional two entries to the grand prize drawing. The Judge’s Choice prize is a gift card to the bakery or pizza place of your choice*. The Pi(e) Week grand prize is membership in a Pie of the Month Club (3-months) OR a gift card of equal value to the bakery or pizza place of your choice.
*Options are limited to establishments that offer gift cards.
