Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, January 3

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, January 3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "heras and villainesses." I'll be soliciting ideas for female protagonists, female antagonists, unexpectedly relevant women, women behaving badly, women who make history, men who are taken horribly unawares by women with agency, magical or technological artifacts that choose female bearers, adventures that appeal to women readers, challenges particular to female characters, plots that would be interesting if formerly male characters were replaced with females, nurseries and battlefields and other places where women may be found, harems and other places where women are kept, the war of the sexes, hijinks resulting from having two heras or a hera and a villainess and no man in sight, sensible armor, and poetic forms in particular. 

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week. Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.
