Poetry Fishbowl Report for April 1, 2014
This month's theme was "genderqueer people." I worked from 12:30 PM to 5:15 AM, so about 14 hours 45 minutes, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 14 poems on Tuesday and 9 later. This fishbowl leaned toward medium poems, with a fair number of epics. There were a few structured but unrhymed poems, and most were free verse.

Participation was vigorous. There were 45 comments on LiveJournal and 31 on Dreamwidth. Please welcome new prompters [personal profile] helgatwb, and LJ user Ng_moonmoth. You have them to thank for the second freebie.

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the unsold poetry list from April 1. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available. There are still several verses of "Hatching into the Future" remaining, which you can reveal by linking to the unsold poetry list or a favorite poem from the March fishbowl.

Most of the currently sponsored poems have been posted, with a couple still pending. Backchannel copies of the rest have gone out to prompters. Per the $200 goal, "Soldier Boy" is the free epic. Per the $250 goal, that's one tally toward a bonus session. Per the $300 goal, there will be a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics later this month.

Donors this month include: [personal profile] librarygeek, [personal profile] alexconall, [personal profile] janetmiles, [personal profile] chanter_greenie, LJ users Ng_moonmoth, the_vulture, Anthony & Shirley Barrette. Welcome new donor Ng_moonmoth, who is partly responsible for the extra freebie.
