*The first includes fandom observations, though including fandom-related material is still up for debate. The last allows for works about sonas, totem animals, spirit animals, etc. This is assuming we get enough of each variety to warrant the break-up.
**We will be hyper-critical of longer poems since we only have so much room to work with. They will be read and considered though.
