Countdown to Poetry Contest Due Midnight Today

Poetry contest entries due midnight Sunday, today PST. Four stanzas, four lines each about children. No poem writing experience needed. Go to New Contest page, scroll down to LEAVE A REPLY to enter.

If you’re new to my blog, I will need to approve it, so your poem might not appear on the site until I’m back on the computer.

Allow  a couple of weeks for judges to decide. I’m glad I’m not one of them, too hard to decide on a winner.  Check out the entries so far. Outstanding!!

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
