Ye'ole Poetry Challenge Is Over, Almost
Not only did we (editors) write poetry, but a few of us wrote more than one. Not bragging (yes, E is), but having an office quiet from distraction; if you don't count the birds chirping their little beaks off each day, and a random car going by because our windows stayed open all day...we accomplished a lot!
We hope you did as well.
The challenge was- turn off your computers, televisions (iPods are allowed), and any other electronic devises, and pull our your pencils, pen, and paper and begin drafting a poem for National Poetry Month. Does that mean we have to write in the dark? No, only by candlelight. We wanted to find out what it would be like centuries ago, when they had no electronics and wrote those long long epic poems we all loved reading in college.
We figure a few cheated and who will know but yourselves...at least your took time to draft and craft words into lines, and then will share them (and about us!) on your personal and professional blog sites, or on here in the comment section. Make sure you leave everyone a link to your sites, so we can find you!
If you had not finished your pieces, then you had until Sunday evening to post them on your sites, come back here and link them, or post them in our comments section. This post will remain up until the end of the month. Anytime will work, because the whole month of April is National Poetry Month. Just share your work!
Thanks for joining in with us, and any completed poems can and will be if you email us a note considered for our yearly anthology slated to come out in October. firstname.lastname@example.org/
Please check out our submission page if you are interested in being in the magazine. We are not just about Zombies...so many more creatures lurk in the dark spaces of our minds and want a place to premiere.
