Poetry Fishbowl Report for July 7, 2015

This time our topic was "The End of the World As We Know It."  I worked from 12:30 PM to 3 AM, so about 12 hours 30 minutes allowing for breaks.  I wrote 16 poems, and for the first time in a long time, finished everything on Tuesday.

Participation was slower, with 16 people sending prompts.  Welcome new prompter DW user Acelightning, whom you have to thank for the second freebie.

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, see the unsold poetry list for July 7, 2015. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

All currently sponsored poems from April have been posted, and backchannel copies sent to the prompters of the rest. Per the $200 goal, "The Diadem of Dreams and Thorns" was the free epic. Per the $250 goal, that's one tally toward a bonus fishbowl.

There were five donors this time, all regulars: janetmiles, Anthony and Shirley Barrette, ng_moonmoth, and kestrels_nest.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
