Change Your Favorite Tune with Grammarly’s “Remix Your Rhymes” Contest

Poetry gets a bad rap. Many people believe that it is old-fashioned, boring, or difficult to understand. However, modern forms of poetry can be quite dynamic. Music, for example, has a lot in common with poetry. Both are rhythmic, expressive, and emotive. Both also allow writers to take certain liberties with the conventional rules of language.

April is National Poetry Month, a celebration of poetry in all of its forms. In commemoration, Grammarly is introducing a “Remix Your Rhymes” contest to encourage writers to take a closer look at the impact of proper writing on song lyrics.

From April 1, 2013 to May 10, 2013, we invite you to edit the lyrics of your favorite song and then record the new version of the song. Upload a video of your grammatically correct performance to our “Remix Your Rhymes” contest page, along with the name of the original song and the artist, and be entered for a chance to win a $300 gift card for Musician’

For rules, or more information on the contest, please visit the “Remix Your Rhymes” contest page.
