April is National Poetry Month

Write a poem….Me!?...Now!?

Well… it could be fun.

Maybe I can try just one…

And maybe send it to the contest if I get it done.

But... when would I find the time…because it's worktime, it's school time, its daytime, it's nighttime, it's bedtime, it's lunchtime, it's dinnertime, it's game time, it's show time, it's just not a good time.

But, it sounds like fun… sometime.

April Member's Only Monthly Contest

Currently we have no plans to host any writing contest, but if we did we could publish winners' stories in an anthology.

(authors would get credited with being published)
