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:
- Oolong tea
- The beach
- A word in a language other than English
- Spaghetti carbonara
- Craftsman furniture
- Cedar Point
Email your poem to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
