Poetry Fishbowl Report for June 6, 2017

Our theme this month was "Poke ALL the Bigots in the Eye." I worked from 12 PM to 5:30 AM, so about 14 hours 30 minutes allowing for breaks. I wrote 8 poems on Tuesday and another 11 later on.

Participation was enthusiastic this time, with 23 comments on LiveJournal and 108 on Dreamwidth. Woohoo! :D There were 7 new prompters this time: [personal profile] mirrorofsmoke (Bonny), ZB on Dreamwidth, tC on Dreamwidth, [personal profile] beasts_of_homeworld (including Ray and jackie), [personal profile] djbluejay, and [personal profile] antisocialite_forum.

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, see the unsold poetry list for June 6, 2017. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

Currently sponsored poems poems from June 6 have all been posted.  (I have another poem to post.) Donors this time include: [personal profile] ng_moonmoth[personal profile] janetmiles, Anthony and Shirley Barrette.

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "As We Have Created It" will be the free epic. We also made the $250 goal, so that's two tallies toward a bonus session.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
