Poetry Fishbowl Report for July 4, 2017 - The Wordsmith's Forge

Poetry Fishbowl Report for July 4, 2017
This month's theme was "Gender, Orientation, and Identity." The first session was on July 4. I wrote from 12:30 PM to 5 AM, so about 14 hours 30 minutes, allowing for breaks. I wrote 5 poems on Tuesday and another 7 later. The second session was July 18 and spread through that week. I wrote 14 more poems.

Participation was quite lively. Session one had 17 comments on LiveJournal, 176 on Dreamwidth; session two had 7 on LiveJournal, 23 on Dreamwidth. There were three new prompters: [personal profile] bairnsidhe, [personal profile] kengr, and SlytherClaw Kid. You have them to thank for the second freebie, "Clutching at Pearls."

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "No Power Like the Power of Youth" is the free epic. We also made the $250 goal, so that's three tallies toward a bonus session.
