April is my birthday month! And the villanelle is my favorite form. So this month, the contest prompt is to write a villanelle incorporating at least one of the following:

  • Glitter
  • Peonies
  • Oolong tea
  • The beach
  • A word in a language other than English
  • Spaghetti carbonara
  • Craftsman furniture
  • Cedar Point

Email your poem to allyson@allysonwhipple.com by 11:59 pm on April 20th. The winner will receive a gift certificate to the independent bookstore of their choice, or I will make a donation in their honor to a nonprofit.
