Open Mic! And Jennifer Brown!
But first the details;
Same rules as always; 300-words or less of your original poem, short story, or novel excerpt. Comment at least one other piece if you post on yourself.
As usual, I will read and (try to) comment the pieces myself, giving you one piece of constructive advice should you ask for it (and truly want it).
This Open Mic is open for entries today through Sunday, after which I suggest you wait to post on next week’s edition, because once we get to Sunday everybody’s ready to move on!
As a special surprise, I’ve asked Jennifer Brown, author of the AH-mazing book, HATE LIST, to be our guest commentator. She will also comment on each posted entry through Sunday, January 24th.
Happy Writing, guys! Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeves this week!
And if you haven’t checked out HATE LIST, you SHOULD. It’s a heartwrenchingly authentic look at the aftermath of a school shooting and was just named to YALSAs Best Books of 2010.
