New Contest: Comment Poetics




You’ve already heard about our 99 words or fewer Flash Fiction Contest (deadline April 10). We’ve decided to add a new contest, Comment Poetics with a shorter deadline, in fact it's today only.

Among the entrants so far:

Repeat Journal commenter and big fan PHARM, who always begins with a compliment and seems to favor repetition:

Very nice site!

Billigfluege London Frankfurt, aka “person,” entered this bit of anarchic freeform prose:

erggh, typos.


Editing my own comment,

so much to say,

but it's too much

for people to hear.


Comment portion above

should read:

The other thing people need to know

is what happens

AFTER the race is won


and what Salzman does then.


Was going to go

into what happens

or what can happen

when he does,

but that's a story

for another time.
