For thirty-one days I am posting a slice and reading others at Two Writing Teachers.
It’s the eve of the March Madness Poetry tournament, hosted by Ed DeCaria Sixty-four “authletes” competing in poetry. Tomorrow evening I will be given a word and will have 36 hours to write a poem. Then everyone will have a chance to vote. If I win two of three polling groups (a nice change), I will move onto the next bracket.
Am both terrified and excited. In 2012, my word was HARRUMPH and I was paired with Amy from The Poem Farm who had BENT. My HARRUMPH poem was a SOLSC 2012 post.
Am stretching my word choice and rhythm moves to get ready.
Good luck! I can’t wait to see your poem.
Thanks for the reminder. I want to share this with my students. Keep stretching those word choice and rhythm moves!
What a great idea! Good luck.
Love the idea of the stretching, Jone! Is that what will help? Cheers to you tomorrow night. My word comes tonight!
Kudos to all of you who participate in this…and lucky me to be able to sit on the sidelines and profit from your labor.
