So, before we get to the main Friday course of "American Life in Poetry" here's an announcement - another poetry contest.
This one is for Twitter Poetry.
Don't know what Twitter Poetry is? It's an extremely short poem - 140 characters or less (that's characters, i.e. each letter, space and mark of punctuation counts as a character. Your word processing program probably counts them.)
Anyway, Utmost has a Twitter Poetry Contest happening. Find out all about it here.
For Canadian Poets the current contest is for poems on the theme of "Where is God"
Deadline - October 31st.
