All five of our finalists have posted their entries. How persuasive were they in convincing you the trophy should be theirs? You decide, but do so BEFORE Friday NOON!
Literati! With a presidential election dooming–OOPS!–looming, here is a chance to practice casting your bullet–ballot! But unlike the national election where you cast a vote for a single candidate, we have a different metric:
Everyone who entered the contest gets THREE votes, including the finalists. Two votes are cast for your favorite finalist entry; One vote for your second favorite. No write-ins.
And even though your own entry is clearly the best (as four people in the previous contest advised me) you must vote for someone OTHER than yourself.
The winners will be announced at sunset this Saturday at the book launch in California for Tiffany Vakilian’s first published book of poetry, and broadcast on line shortly thereafter.
Send your votes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not post your votes in the comment box below.
The next contest will be announced early next week, along with clearly defined rules for judging.
Next time you sea foam on the beach as a wave recedes, think of Merman, holding his beer, and know the truer explanation of the bubbly phenomenon on the sand.
Let the doting begin!
