Make your books into a poemPosted: September 18, 2011
Agent Janet Reid always has fun contests on her blogs that showcase some great creative talent.
Her latest–Make your books into a poem–is an idea cribbed from YA writer Tahereh Mafi and challenges entrants to use any combination of books to create a poem, adding only a few words.
The contest closed at noon today and I’m waiting to see who won. I think there are more entries to be posted, but here’s my favorite so far:
I’d give honorable mention to Nicola 3:31 am
We are just the SKELETON CREW,
the last WARM BODIES
after WORLD WAR Z.
I, a LIVING DEAD GIRL,
exist in THE SHADOW OF THE WIND,
dreaming of THE DEAD AND THE GONE,
HAUNTED by the
TORMENT OF OTHERS.
in THE DEAD ZONE,
waiting for the ALL CLEAR,
but I’ll never BEG FOR MERCY.
What’s your favorite?
