Can you write under pressure without breaking a sweat?
Always telling friends that writing a crown of heroic sonnets is a cinch?
Do you dream of perfect line breaks?
If you think you’ve got the write moves, I’ve got the poetry competition for you.
Head over to I Was Born Doing Reference Work In Sin to read the contest guidelines. The prizes to the winning poet are very generous – a chapbook published by Limp Wrist, writing time at a retreat center, plus an interview on a radio show. But more than anything, you’ll have the chance to do a lot of writing, and have your work read by some experienced poets, including Dana Guthrie Martin and Beth Gylys.
Dustin Brookshire has a lot of energy and a true passion for poetry. When you read the guidelines for the contest you’ll see how much work he has put into organizing and gathering all the threads to bring about Project Verse. After you read the contest guidelines, be sure to check out his web site, Limp Wrist. There’s a great interview with Denise Duhamel that’s currently up.
