Headlining: The Vote Off

We were amazed to see how many different sorts of news stories brought inspiration for our poets – everything from the devastation of Ebola to the heartwarming tales of a mother in need.

What will our headline say tomorrow?

The only way to decide that is to read your fellow poets and vote, vote, vote!

Voting Denial

This was the week for voting, but our voting promises to be far less annoying than the midterm elections. This week’s prompt brought out some fantastic poetry and forced us to really face some of our biggest regrets and denials.

And guess what? The three votes are a permanent feature now.

So take a moment to read the work from others in your community and vote for your favorite three this week! The winner will be featured Sunday and be considered as a submission for the spring issue of the magazine.

Come Vote with Me

This week’s prompt brought out some fantastic poetry and, at least on my end, really bad dance moves. I can only hope I’m not alone in that last category.

I think last week was a success, so as a reward, you’re being given THREE votes again.

You can thank me later.

So take a moment to read the work from others in your community and vote for your favorite three this week! And yes, you can certainly vote for yourself. We don’t judge egos around here. The winner will be featured Sunday and be considered as a submission for the spring issue of the magazine.

Vote Along the Way

This week’s prompt really brought out so many amazing pieces of poetry. We are just blown away by the sheer awesomeness that is this community. You all deserve a high five…or a vote 😀

We’re going to try something new this week. You are being given THREE votes, but they have to be used on different pieces.

So take a moment to read the work from others in your community and vote for your favorite three this week! The winner will be featured Sunday and be considered as a submission for the spring issue of the magazine.
