A while back I received the following invitation:
“A Panacea of Poetry East Central is having a poetry contest! It will be positively poetic and panoptic!
The first phase we undertook in Grades 9 and 10 was to explore Ladders to the Dark. The first poem was published, April 21, 2009. And today 38 students have written over 350 poems, fragments, and musings.
Links to all published poems can be found at our Queneau blog, aka Random Poetry, in the comments section following each exercise.
Now, here’s what I would like to see from students, today:
- Write a post that contains links to three of your best poems and/or links to three of the best poems written by your classmates
- Submit a comment below with a link to that post.
- Return to this blog later today to find out who I’ve seleted to advance to the next phase
Today, three poems in Grade 9 and three poems from Grade 10 will be entered in the next phase of the contest.
Winners(and prizes???) of A Panacea of Poetry will be announced June 15, 2009.
