MagicalJoey is hosting a poetry anthology contest and needs prize donors, promoters, and participants!

MagicalJoey's Anthology Contest IIWhy hello there you lovely person. Yes, you! No, not the madly waving person behind you...just you. You have arrived at a very nice place. While we have no unicorns, candy or coffee, we do have a contest! That's right, you've arrived at:

While the idea isn't entirely an original one, last year I decided that I wanted to host a poetry contest that promotes the writing of poetry. And what better way to do so than by holding an Anthology Contest - I am an aspiring poet who aims to publish an anthology one day, and I am sure that there are many more like me - where you have to write poetry that is specific, packs an impact and is anthology 'worthy'. Thus, MagicalJoey's Anthology Contest was born. It runs concurrently with NaPoWriMo ( NaPoWriMo ) so you can get your write on in April and polish and submit in May - or just do what I do and write/submit from gut feeling/creativity.
What This Is (About The Contest)

Members: If you hear about anything awesome going on around DA (from contests to collaborations to opportunities), we would love to promote it! Feel free to note me or comment here and I'll include it in the next weekly journal. :) (Smile)

That's all I ever wanted
That's all I ever need

Weekly Prompt:

May I hold you?

Submit your responses to this prompt to this gallery so I can feature them in next week's journal! Last week's prompt was "tell this to the people who need to know" and here are the responses:

There weren't any because I forgot to post last week's journal until just now! But if you write from it, submit anyway, and I'll still feature you next week. :)

That's all from me for this week!

Just to let people who are visiting here know that I am accepting submissions. I can't update the journal without a vote though, and I haven't been able to contact anyone yet. I'm not going to let this group die just yet though!
