Madness! Poetry 2017 -- a fun tournament for kids' poets
« on: January 30, 2017, 07:34 PM »
Hello, SCBWI poetry writers!

I wanted to personally (?) invite everyone on this board to apply to the Madness! Poetry 2017 tournament, which I'm now hosting at http://madnesspoetry.com/. I completely redesigned the experience from the ground up to make it that much better for writers, teachers, and fans.

I specifically wanted to link to the event here because so many great new authletes came in from the SCBWI boards previously, I figured there are probably more of you lurking still.

The event is a great way to get your name out there, make new friends with like-minded/like-talented people, and together enjoy turning poetry into something unique and fun for students around our country and the world.

Don't hesitate to ask questions here; I'll be checking and will respond to all posts.

Thanks!

-Ed

p.s. Here's a direct link to the application page: http://madnesspoetry.com/apply

First words are being assigned today!  Poets have 36 hours to write a poem using their word.  There are 64 writers competing in this college basketball style tournament. 

I believe everyone is able to vote on matchups.  Voting for round 1 begins on Tuesday, March 7th, and closes on the 9th. 

Come out and support your fellow Blue Boarders.
