Poetry Carnival: Theme — Short Poetry

October 5, 2005

I am pleased to announce that I will be the host of this month’s Poetry Carnival.

The Poetry Carnival, an idea originated by Andrew Nichols of fame, is a chance to highlight your own poetry by submitting poems on a specific theme in order for them to be highlighted on this blog with a link to your poem and your blog as well.

Following Andrew’s process, please submit your poem to me by October 14th at 11:59 p.m. EST. I will compile the submissions into a post and have it on the blog by Sunday October 16th.

NEW THIS MONTH: I would like to ask for a theme for all entries and this month’s theme is short poetry — limericks, haiku, tanka, renku, cinquains, you name it — anything is welcome as long as it is 6 lines or less.

So, to participate, email me your poem (please submit only one) to moneyman(at)mit(dot)edu by 11:59 p.m. October 14th. In your email please specify the following:

Title of Blog:
URL of Blog:
Title of Poem (or just the first line or a number):
Permalink URL of the Poem:
Number of Lines:
Poem itself (remember no more than 6 lines):

Looking forward to seeing your submissions!
