    Voting has closed in AW writing Contest!! Thanks All!

    Amazing, astonishing, mind-blowing....

    All of the AW February poetry contest entries are in, and I've never seen so many entries in an AW poetry contest before!

    Voting has begun and we desperately need your vote!

    Please, Please, take a few minutes of your time and send Ambrosia your pick for your top three poems via Private Message:

    How to Vote
    The poems are posted at this link:
    Contest Entries here (password: citrus)

    First: Read them all!!!

    Second: begin the nearly maddening challenge of picking your top three from all of the entries!

    Third: send Ambrosia your vote via Private Message!
    (one vote per current AW member in good standing)

    The subject line of your PM to Ambrosia should read:
    VOTE: DREAMS, VISIONS, or NIGHTMARES Contest.

    In the body of the message, include three votes in your voting order, from first to third. List both the poem number and the title. For example:

    9. Flying Pigs
    2. Falling Stars
    5. Beauty's Breath

    Voting closes at 11:59PM US Eastern on February 29, 2012. Any votes received after that time will not count, even in your dreams.

    Ambrosia will then post complete results with vote totals for every entry, and announce the winners.

    =======================================
    *Warning: Picking your top three favorites out of all of these amazing entries may be terribly stressful to your brain's functionality. Smoke may begin to pour out of your ears, hair may feel uncomfortable and in need of pulling, foreheads may find a sudden attraction to desktops. To avoid these side affects - PM me for a ready-made ballot.

    The doll ain't wrong. Some excellent entries and a worthwhile and rewarding time to be had giving the poets a vote.

    Five (5) days left to vote!

    and there's less than 40 votes? Seriously? Awe c'mon!!!
    (40,145 members and we can't muster 1 percent???)

    Get your friends to vote (if you have any) pester people,
    be annoying! =) It's all for fun!

    Give a nod to a fellow AW writer!

    I will add one note in addition to thanking Kelly for wonderfully prodding folks.

    You must have joined AW on or before Jan 12th to vote. I am sorry to the February peoples who were kind enough to send in votes, and wish the rules were different. But it is too late to rewrite them now.

    So, if you are an AW member who joined on or before Jan 12th, 2012--send in your vote!

    I am very happy to announce we are now up to 50 votes. Thank you, everyone who has answered the call to vote.

    I would like to see a lot more votes, so please don't stop. The poets worked hard for this contest and the poems are of exceeding quality. It is well worth the read and effort to send in your choices.

    Please vote. Pass it on to others. Thank you.

    What happens when you get the 22? Is there a prize?

    There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

    Answer the Question of the Week.* New questions found on the last page of the thread.

    *May or may not actually be updated once a week.

    21 more votes is too much? How about just 12?

    See? I have just made it easier for you.

    Just thought I'd echo the call. I voted and it was fun. Since they are poems, it's a very short time commitment.

    You don't have to be an expert, just vote for what you like. That's what I did. It's a shame I could only vote for three poems though. They were all good.
