You know the rules. In case you don't, a brief rundown: Starting today (March 1st, except it's almost midnight so oops) until the end of the month, post one or two lines that help progress the poem. Post as often as you want, try to keep writer's varied, anyone can contribute, yada yada, ok here we go. This month's theme: Oasis. Bring your quiet forest paths and secluded beaches. Evoke your favorite corner of the library or that spot at the top of a mountain where there's nothing but the wind. If it's meditative, if it's sheltering, if it's metaphorical or literal, as long as it's an oasis you're set. Now go, my writers! Write.
Well January lasted about five years, so maybe February will feel like a real month. Okay, the rules are simple: start commenting today (Feb 1, 2018) and keep adding those coherent, sense-making lines one or two at a time until February 28 at midnight, whenever that is for you. If you want a line break, please give us a line break or a / or something to separate them! Try to submit 1-2 lines at a time. If you're like, hyper-inspired, please write a full poem and post it. I endorse inspiration. Please write here, too, though. The theme this month is color! All types and shades of color. All tints and color-codes and imagery accepted. You guys are creative people, you've got this in the bag. Go forth and write!
The Slam collective poem for November and December I'm really excited for this. I made some guidelines, but we'll see how it goes. For comments/questions/discussion use the Community poem 1 forum This poem is open to everyone to contribute. The last day to contribute is December 31st. Each person can add one line at a time. While you can post indefinitely, please keep authors varied throughout poem. Your contribution should be deliberate, as in your line develops the poem the way YOU want to develop it. The topic will develop throughout the course of the poem's composition. First person to contribute writes the opening line. -Hydralio
