Deadlines are motivators for me. I work best with a clock ticking. With these facts in mind, I look at the selection process of choosing (at least ten, at most twenty) poems for the chapbook manuscript in a time frame. I have about a week.
This means I’m going to need your help. Below is a list of titles and prompts (with links!) from November’s poetry challenge. Let me know which ones were most significant, enjoyable, or memorable to you by commenting or replying with three title(s) you liked. I didn’t include all the drafts here, but if you liked one not found on the list, mention it as well.
Let the sifting begin!
