Poetry Fishbowl Report for August 7, 2018

Our theme this month was "Poke a Bigot in the Eye: Ableism Edition." I wrote from 12 PM to 5:15 AM, so about 15 hours 15 minutes, allowing for breaks. I wrote 7 poems on Tuesday and 8 more later on.

Participation was a little lower this month, with 17 comments on LiveJournal and another 54 on Dreamwidth. A total of 22 people sent prompts. There were no new prompters.

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the August 7, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"Intersectional Accessibility"
"A Leg Up"
"My Fate Is Meet"
"Raw Deal"
"You Don't Need a Degree"

"Where Symbols Had the Power" (July 3, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl) (linkback)
"Sucking Brew" (Polychrome Heroics: Marionettes, July 3, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl spillover) (free epic)
"Catch a Rising Tide" (Polychrome Heroics: SPOON, outside prompt calls)

All poems sponsored from the August 7 fishbowl have been posted. Its sponsors include: [personal profile] bairnsidhe, [personal profile] janetmiles, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "Sucking Brew" is the free epic. It also made its $250 goal, so there will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, September 18.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
