My friend ysabetwordsmith
is doing her March poetry fishbowl today. Her topic is
...elements and elemental spirits. (Western, eastern, scientific, or other sets of elements are welcome. Western elemental spirits are most famous but others are fine too.)
A Poetry Fishbowl is poetry written approximately to spec -- you give her a prompt, she'll write a poem. She may combine prompts from more than one person in a given piece. You'll get a copy (via email) of the poem written to your prompt, and she'll post a comment with the title and a short description, including cost.
She usually posts one free poem per month as a teaser. If you sponsor a poem (can be any poem listed, doesn't have to be the one written for you), she will post it on her journal as a separate entry, and you receive non-exclusive reprint rights, which means you can re-post it (with proper credit, of course!) in your journal or blog.Go feed the fish!
If at least one new person posts a prompt or sponsors a poem, ysabetwordsmith
will post an additional free poem.
