November Poetry Contest

I’m excited for another round of the Monthly Poetry Contest! This time around, I’ve extended the deadline so that people have more time to draft and send a poem. Once again, the prize is a $25 gift card to the independent bookstore of the winner’s choosing. See the Monthly Poetry Contest page for complete rules (there aren’t many).

Prompt
Last month, I had a dream where an angel allowed me to see my favorite writer’s afterlife records. One of the tabs in the folder was labeled, “Bad Surprises from Good Decisions.” When I woke up, that phrase stayed with me.

Write a poem of any length, using “Bad Surprises from Good Decisions” either in your title and/or the poem itself. Emailyour poem to allyson@allysonwhipple.com by 11:59 pm on November 15th. The winner will receive a gift certificate to the independent bookstore of their choice.
