Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 17, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl - The Wordsmith's Forge
The Writing & Other Projects of Elizabeth Barrette
Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 17, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl
The bonus fishbowl theme was "Fiorenza the Wisewoman."  I've updated the entry for that series on the Serial Poetry page.  Some prompts arrived early, while others came in quite late -- so I didn't quite get to one prompt by everyone, but close.  A total of 19 people sent prompts, counting the Dreamwidth and backchannel ones.  There were 61 comments on LJ and 2 on DW, including mine.  I worked from 12:20 PM to 1:25 AM, so about 11 hours 15 minutes allowing for lunch and supper breaks.

I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday.  I may write more later, as I didn't get to all the prompts that gave me ideas.  There were six epics, one medium-long poem, and three medium-short poems.  All of the medium-short poems were forms: a terza rima, a villanelle, and a sonnet.  Everything else was free verse.

Please welcome new prompters moon_fox, shadows_gallery, and DW user syntaxofthings.  You have them to thank for getting to vote on a second freebie.

Donations were decent this time.  I don't make near as much on the mid-month fishbowls as on the main ones, but that's to be expected at this stage.  I'm content if I make something and get a batch of good poetry.

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the January 17, 2012 fishbowl have been posted:
"Cups and Coins"
"Fiorenza and the Sea"
"Fiorenza's New Hat"
"Tabagnino and the Beanstalk"
"Three Brothers and a Bull"
"Walking with the Witch-Son"

Also, four new verses of "The Morose Mascot" were sponsored and posted.

Buy Some Poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the list of unsold poetry from January 17, 2012.  That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.  At this time, there are only two microfunded poems open, so any one of the remaining epics from this session would be eligible for microfunding.

The mid-month donors include: laffingkat, rix_scaedu, and janetmiles.  Thank you all for your support!
