Halloween Contemporary Poetry Half-Packet

Post by Dantooine is Big! »

Hi, I've written a Halloween Contemporary Poetry Half-Packet. It is 10 tossups about poetry that generally prioritizes poetry from the past 20 years, though some late 20th-century poetry is included as well. The difficulty is open-level. The subject matter has nothing to do with Halloween, I just wrote it today, is all. I might write more contemporary poetry tossups in the future, and if I get enough good ideas, I might put together a separate full packet. For now, please post in this thread or PM me on Discord or here on the forums if you'd like to play this in the next week or so. I will read them eventually in the Discord.

Thank you all!

This will tentatively happen tonight at 10pm Eastern in the Quizbowl Discord server. Let me know if you want to hear the questions again another time and I can probably do it.

This happened last Sunday on Halloween, where I read 13 power-marked tossups. I wrote 11 more tossups to make a 24-tossup full packet. I'll read the remaining 11 tossups on Thursday at 10pm Eastern in the Discord server again. If you'd like the date/time to be moved, please let me know. I'll post the packet after all the questions have been read to everyone who wants to hear them.
