Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, September 4

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, September 4, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "rights and responsibilities." I'll be soliciting ideas for rights activists, responsible heroes, oppressors, taglines about rights, activist tools and techniques, places where people defend rights, places of responsibility, famous rights movements, pivotal events in activism, the kinds of rights that people expect, new rights that come with new technology or other developments, unexpected or unwilling responsibilities, and poetic forms in particular. 

Also, I need a volunteer to host the linkback poem.  Please contact me if you're willing to do that; it will get you on the Donors list.

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week.  (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.)  Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.
