I’m not a big fan of contests, but this one is priced right and mixes the two things I blather on about ad nauseum! Oh yeah, baby! I’m so there!!!
From The Bard Brawl:
Take the following quote and give us your best poem, story, non-fiction essay or artwork inspired by it.
Make it brilliant, make it bardy, make it brawly.
KING LEAR: Make no noise, draw the curtains. So, so; we’ll go to supper i’ th’ morning.
FOOL: And I’ll go to bed at noon.
The fee for this contest is $5, and submissions are due by October 25th. (More submission info at the link.) A winner and two runners-up will win moola plus publication in Bard Brawl.
As I never win contests, and am sure not to win this one if I manage to enter, I’ll write a follow-up post on where you might like to submit non-winning entries. Because that’s the fun of rejection and losing in the writing world: you always get to send your work off somewhere else!
Also, Mighty Tiny Bill says he’s going to etch the word “bardy” into the plastic of his Original Packaging.
