Dustin Brookshire and Limp Wrist Present

Project Verse! Dustin Brookshire, Atlanta writer, editor, and publisher, author of I Was Born Doing Reference Work in Sin and Editor/Publisher of Limp Wrist is hosting a poetry contest.

Can you write under pressure without breaking a sweat?
Always telling friends that writing a crown of heroic sonnets is a cinch?
Do you dream of perfect line breaks?
If you think you’ve got the write moves, I’ve got the poetry competition for you.

Head over to I Was Born Doing Reference Work In Sin to read the contest guidelines. The prizes to the winning poet are very generous – a chapbook published by Limp Wrist, writing time at a retreat center, plus an interview on a radio show. But more than anything, you’ll have the chance to do a lot of writing, and have your work read by some experienced poets, including Dana Guthrie Martin and Beth Gylys.

Jo Hemmant and I have a small but exciting part to play in this fabulous literary extravaganza – we will write a review of the resulting chapbook in our magazine, ouroboros review.

Dustin Brookshire has a lot of energy and a true passion for poetry. When you read the guidelines for the contest you’ll see how much work he has put into organizing and gathering all the threads to bring about Project Verse. After you read the contest guidelines, be sure to check out his web site, Limp Wrist. There’s a great interview with Denise Duhamel that’s currently up.

    Hello,

    Can you write under pressure without breaking a sweat?
    Always telling friends that writing a crown of heroic sonnets is a cinch?

    My answer to (1) and (2) above is categorically no!

    Do you dream of perfect line breaks?

    And, oh yes, to this.

    Sounds great, Dustin. I’m off to read the interview with Denise Duhamel.

    Thanks for this, C.
