When is the actual cut-off deadline? Midnight tonight? Or are entries allowed tomorrow? (Couldn't find that tidbit.)

This is quite exciting; can't wait to see how others have interpreted the prompt.

Not sure how I'm going to fare waiting two weeks to vote though!

Yes, that's right.

That's 2pm Thursday, my local time. Around AW, words like "tonight" always do my head in.

Thanks. Okay, I'll leave my sigline up then, in case of last minute inspiration on the part of any who have not yet entered.

Quick heads-up:

I do try to respond to PMs quickly, and I do send confirmations that I've received entries.

But I'll be travelling tomorrow, so probably won't be here to reply before the deadline. I'll be back the next day. Thanks.

Seven hours til the deadline.

I do hope we get a flurry of last minute entries.

Between submitting this paper and preparing for my prelim defense next week, I'm afraid I probably won't make it.

Sorry, ya'll.

Well, we'll just have to have another contest in a few months, when the two of you might have more availability.

There's a plan! This has not been a very good summer for poetry (or anything else) for me, but i'm hoping it gets better soon.

Hope this isn't like the Millennium Falcon.....

I think you'll change your tone when you need to make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.

but now I'm not because it feels like I'll wake tomorrow with all these surprises like under a Christmas tree only they're poems to read.... (well, once the work of posting them all is done, that is.)

Good luck, all entrants! I'm excited to read what we've come up with here.
