I wanted to let you all know about an opportunity to flex your creative wings. With this contest, you have a chance to win a beautiful book, (including one of the ones I edited), and to have your winning piece published on the Poetry Sans Frontieres website (http://poetrysansfrontieres.weebly.com/contest-page.html).
This contest is for 500 words of poetry or prose. Here is the prompt, which you must respond to in your entry:
“I had gone to no such place but to the smoke of cafes and nights when the room whirled and you needed to look at the wall to make it stop, nights in bed, drunk, when you knew that that was all there was, and the strange excitement of waking and not knowing who it was with you, and the world all unreal in the dark and so exciting that you must resume again unknowing and not caring in the night, sure that this was all and all and all and not caring.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms
