Limerick Contest

It's time to rhyme!

TWR Times is having a limerick writing contest!  We all love limericks!  And they’re so easy to write! Submit your limericks and be eligible to win a $25 prize each month this summer from June thru Sept.

Limericks follow a pattern, you see.

  1.  Each limerick has 5 lines
  2. Lines 1, 2, and 5 must rhyme
  3. Lines 3 and 4 are shorter and rhyme with each other
  4. This is called an AABBA rhyme pattern.

For example…

An elderly man called Keith,
Mislaid his set of false teeth.
They’d been laid on a chair,
He forgot they were there,
Sat down, and was bitten beneath.

Each month, send your original limericks to editor@twrtimes.com In June, from June 1-30. The first month’s winner will be announced at Monday coffee on July 2. We’ll read three different/funny limericks but, only one prize will be awarded each month.
