Um, I'm not seeing where it's stickied in the Chapbook forum (and I used the correct password)...:cry:
They will be posted all at once, after the entry deadline. I'll update the OP.

I'm going to need Cassandra or Kyla to lock me in a room until I write and submit a poem.

I can't be trusted to do it on my own.

I'll nag you, but imprisonment is against my principles.

Did you write a poem about space today? No? Well, get to it. One a day. Then you can pick one on the deadline day.

What will be posted all at once? *is confused again*

I'm not sure I'll enter myself, but I'll be more than glad to help William stick lit matches between Kuwi's toes.

You're not sure you'll enter?

What?

WHAT?




Mods, do we have sanctions for traitors and betrayers? Someone threaten her with something.

Yes. Bolding mine:

After the closing date, the entries will be posted, anonymously, in a sticky thread in the Chapbook subforum.

So I misspoke a little. I won't be anonymous when I post them, but I'll leave out the authors' names. I'll add those after the results are announced.

Hey, I should write so it's clearer, right? I'll fix that...

Where would a contest be without a poem from a CassandraW?

Thanks, guys.

If I don't submit, please don't take it as a snub of the AW poetry community. Writing and sharing poetry takes a certain amount out of me emotionally, and lately, I've had some Real Life™ stuff going on that has, for the time being, sapped me. I am writing a bit, but not anything I want to share, and I've mostly been lurking here. We'll see how it goes over the next month.

I've been feeling it would be hypocritical to put the contest link in my signature when there's a good shot I won't submit myself, but perhaps I'll do it anyway. I post a lot in other forums, so I'm not a bad person to help get the word out.

I promise I'll vote, even if I don't submit.

In the Castle, of course.

I don't think it is hypocritical at all. I put it in mine because I want Steppe to have all the success possible, even though there is a 99.99% possibility I won't be entering. I'm in the midst of writing a novel and unless it is finished in time for me to switch head space from writing prose to writing poetry and actually get a poem written and submitted, it isn't happening. The possibility of me finishing the novel in time? I think 00.01% may be reaching a bit. :greenie

It is perhaps just as well I didn't pursue the banana split joke.

Good luck to everyone who enters. Not sure I'll get there. I have the vaguest sense of an idea, but they sometimes end in dead ends. I also have a deadline on some copy editing and lots of summer things going on.

Cassandra, I hope the life stuff you're dealing with ends well, whatever that means for the situation.

I quote from above:
After the closing date, the entries will be posted,
without the authors' usernames, in a sticky thread in the Chapbook subforum.


The closing date is in early August...so the sticky thread is not up yet.
