Poetry Fishbowl Report for June 3, 2014
This month's theme was "first contact."  I worked from 11:30 AM to 3:30 AM, so about 14 hours allowing for breaks.  I wrote 19 poems on Tuesday and another 5 later.  Many of them were medium-length again, although this time there were also a lot of epics.  It was about evenly mixed between series and stand-alone poetry, with a few form poems amidst the free verse.

Participation was up, with 43 comments on LiveJournal and another 28 on Dreamwidth.  Please welcome new prompters moriwen1 and DW user Kshandra.  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 June 3. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

Currently sponsored poems have all been posted.  Per the $200 goal, "The Freedom Machine" is the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, there will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, June 17 featuring Frankenstein's Family.  Per the $300 goal, there will be a half-price sale in a series to be determined later.

The donor perk-post is "First Contact."  Donors this month included the_vulture, janetmiles, zianuray, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  There were no new donors.
