Poetry Fishbowl Report for May 1, 2018

Our theme for this session was "neurodiversity." I wrote from 12:45 PM to 3:45 AM, so about 13 hours accounting for breaks. I wrote 11 poems on Tuesday and another 5 later.

Participation was enthusiastic, with 19 on LiveJournal and another 97 on Dreamwidth. A total of 27 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompter [personal profile] torc87, whom you can thank for the second freebie.

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the May 1, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"A Brief History of Stimming"
"Dreaming Idiots and Trusting Fools"
"Let It Fly Away"
"The Softness of the Sounds"
"Sparrows and Penguins"
"To Think What Nobody Has Thought"
"What Kind of Difference" (sponsored, not posted yet)

"Nascent Wisdom" (April 3, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl, standalone)
"The Currency of Leadership" (April 3, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl, Polychrome Heroics: Aquariana)

Most of the currently sponsored poems have been posted. This month's sponsors include: [personal profile] erulisse, [personal profile] kengr, [personal profile] janetmiles, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "The Currency of Leadership" is the free epic. It also made the $250 goal, so that's three tallies toward a bonus fishbowl, which will be on Tuesday, May 15.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
