So, how about that election? It’s a new year and a renewed commitment to my blog which was lagging there at the end of last year. Being that we have a new exciting/controversial President-elect, a new congressional balance, and many changes in the wake I thought it appropriate that our first poetry party of this new era be about and around politics.
Yep, you heard me right. This will either be amazing or sink into the deepest waters of blogpost detritus. No matter what country you live in, what language you speak, your age, or political alignments please put your thoughts about anything politics into poetic form and join us for #NewEra poetry. The best thing about poetry is that it can be freeform, #norules!
There are however rules for Memee’s Poetry Parties:
The hashtag for this month’s party is #NewEra. I will post a reminder for final submissions and a call for you to let your followers understand that voting occurs offsite and you’d like them to go to the punchbowl, read all the submitted poetry, and vote for their very favorite.
Submission deadline is Tuesday, January 24th, 2017, at 23:55 PST. Submit now!
Voting opens at 00:05 PST on Wednesday, January 25th and ends on Tuesday, January 31sh at 23:55 PST.*
All participants get a badge, and the favorite poem will be featured, reblogged, archived for posterity and that poet will receive a one-of-a-kind badge representative of their achievement. Winner announced Feb 1st, 2017.
