Midnight Eastern Time on January 31st is the deadline for the third annual Eye On Life Poetry Contest. There is still time to enter. Fame, glory and the one hundred dollar first prize could still be yours – but you know what they say. If you don’t enter, you can’t win.
Only ten days left to enter the Eye On Life Poetry Contest for 2011-2012.
We have a number of entries now that should make it easy on the judges, but who wants to make it easy on the judges? Odds are still great for winning the $100 first prize. In my totally unbiased opinion – hey, you should go for it, bucko.
It’s not like Cris Advincula and I ever met, yet I felt a kinship with him that will last beyond his life and perhaps mine, too.
Today Cris died unexpectedly from complications of diabetes. He was a young man, on his computer, probably creating compelling poetry or images as was his wont. He was ever an inspiring and community building man, always with a positive outlook. Even when the tsunami took everything, still he was able to take it in stride. His strength and his creativity remain as totems and exemplars to us, we who are left behind to try to grasp some corner of his genius before it is blown off into oblivion by the winds of time.
I would just like to remind everyone that the deadline for the Eye On Life annual Poetry Contest is January 31st. We have only a few entries so far, so odds are still good to win the $100 first prize, $50 second prize or a book of poetry for one of two third prizes. Take your time, but don’t miss the deadline!
I take great pleasure in publishing the work of such fine poets. This time Donal gives us a chuckle and Jason makes us run for the dictionary.
