This month's theme was "schooling vs. education." I worked from 1 PM to 5:30 PM, so about 14 hours 30 minutes allowing for breaks. I wrote 9 poems on Tuesday and another 8 later in the week.
Participation was moderate, with 34 comments on LiveJournal and another 41 on Dreamwidth. There were no new prompters this month.

All currently sponsored poems from this session have been posted. There were four donors this time: janetmiles, DW user Alatefeline, Anthony and Shirley Barrette.
The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "To See by Hero-Light" is the free epic. That's one tally for the $250 goal.
