Poetry challenge Fifty: the entries

This challenge was the last for the time being. Call it the end of Season One. This has been one helluva ride for me, so much poetry that I’ve discovered, and met so many poets. I hope you have enjoyed it too. When things settle down I hope to bring the challenge back. In the meantime, keep writing and keep in touch.

Lady Lee has been ever cheerful

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Thank you so much Jane for this first round. I have grown to love so many new poetry forms. Best wishes to you and much success in your writing endeavors. You are an inspiration to me! -kat

  2. Another wonderful group of poems. This was a fun form. I will have to remember it.
    Thank you so much for these challenges, dear Jane. I have learned so much. I never would have tried to write so many different types of poems without your challenges. I like that you called this Season 1–and I will look forward to Season 2. Enjoy your break, Jane. You have earned it!
    Thank you again.

    1. Don’t thank me! I’ve enjoyed doing this and I’ve got as much out of it as anyone, if not more. If the break gets too long, I might slip in a few spot challenges, just to keep you on your toes 🙂

  3. Looking forward to season 2 already! Will there be interviews and extras on the DVD release for season 1?
    What a treasure of goodies today. As enchanting as the stars.
