It Begins Today! March Madness Poetry 2013!

March 12, 2013

I was honored to be selected for the March Madness Poetry 2013 Competition coordinated and sponsored by Ed Decaria, at his Think Kid Think website. TODAY, March 12th, the games bTKTink_flat_tagline_medegin.  I am in the Logic Bracket (but the term doesn’t imply anything about the entries), and I get my seed word tonight between 8:00 and 9:00 pm.  I am a number 2 seed (my word is rated ‘clear’) up against Josh J. Close, a 22-year old writer.

I am anxious.  Maybe THAT might be my word…I have no idea.  The Round 1 Flight 1 words were posted last night, and they are intimidating.  We have 36 hours to write and post a poem, and then the voting begins.

I love contests like this, and this one will be fun.  I hope you will take a look and log in to vote on your favorites. May the best verse(s) win!
