Poetry Fishbowl Report for July 1, 2014
Our theme this month was "concerning cats."  I worked from 1 PM to 4:30 AM, so about 13 hours 30 minutes, allowing for breaks.  I wrote 13 poems on Tuesday and another 7 later.  There was a broad spread of lengths covering the whole range, mostly free verse with a few form poems.  I was particularly delighted by several gems at the $5 size.

Participation was enthusiastic, with 49 comments on LiveJournal and another 41 on Dreamwidth.

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the unsold poetry list from July 1. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

All currently sponsored poems have been uploaded.  Backchannel copies of the rest have gone out to sponsors.  Per the $200 goal, "Wherever We Find Them" is the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's one tally toward a bonus fishbowl.  Per the $300 goal, I still need to post a piece of bonus material.

The donor perk isn't written yet.  Donors this month included janetmiles, lb_lee, laffingkat, marina_bonomi, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
