Just a quick post to tell you that the 2nd Annual March Madness Poetry Tournament (aka #MMPoetry2013) has begun!
Devised and run by the demonic Ed DeCaria at ThinkKidThink!, 64 "authletes" write poems in rounds, just like basketball's March Madness. And madness it is, indeed! But the best part is this: you get to vote for the best poem in each round!
Poets include Bruce Balan, who regular readers know sails around the world on his trimaran, moi, and LOTS of friends of this blog from the Kidlitosphere, especially those who frequent Poetry Friday. Meet all the authletes here!
Here's the link to my poem and that of Deborah Holt Williams, my fabulous opponent (my word is "puttering," which I did for 36 hours with that word...it felt as if I were cooking in a Food Network contest--no time, no time! My honored opponent's word? "sophisticate"--which she handles beautifully.)
So, come on over and vote for your fav poems as they're unveiled! It's one big poetry game in the sky!
