One Hundred Words About The Poetry Challenge

The last challenge was in 2001.

At the end of this July we begin our second poetry challenge.

Each week for one year my cousin Jeff and me will post to each other a poem a week. It can get quite stressful and competitive.

We will meet four times during the year to read, discuss and judge each quarter’s poems and at the end of the year we will meet to judge and proclaim the winning poem.

I wrote 56 poems for the last challenge and I worked on one quarter of those and now consider 12 of them good.

52 new poems, I am waiting to see them.
That's a lot of work.

perhaps you better start writing now!

Don't tell anyone Simon but I have started eleven poems over the last couple of weeks.

If I can get twenty or thirty poems in draft by the first post date I will feel a lot more confident about the challenge.
