Poetry Fishbowl Report for November 7, 2017

This session's theme was "outlandish occupations." I wrote from noon to 6 AM, so about 14 hours accounting for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday and another 14 later.

Participation was up, with 22 comments on LiveJournal and another 57 on Dreamwidth. Please welcome new prompter Dale Beaver.

If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, see the unsold poetry list for November 7, 2017. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

Currently sponsored poems from this session have been posted. This month's donors include: [personal profile] bairnsidhe, Anthony & Shirley Barrette, [personal profile] janetmiles, and [personal profile] ng_moonmoth.

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "Extraordinary People" is the free epic. It also made the $250 goal, so that's one tally toward a bonus fishbowl.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
