Thanks to Heidi who’s hosting Poetry Friday at My Juicy Little Universe.
All good intentions to get this post up yesterday. The distraction of ‘Will my district settle a contract before school?” occupied my mind yesterday. I started the day walking for an hour, holding a sign, with about a thousand others at the four local high schools. It was great for getting my steps done for the day. I was toast when I got home.

Judging Round Two information HERE.
September 14 is the deadline to turn in an application. I really hope to see your name on the application list.
What has been decided about verse novels? I don’t see it as a separate choice.
Sigh, a big one…it was determine by the higher powers that there weren’t enough yet for their own category. So they will be in with poetry one more year at least. Hopefully, that won’t discourage anyone from choosing to apply.
