Got some sinful poetry boiling in your brain? Throw your words into the mosh pit for Versification’s very first
BATTLE OF THE PUNKS!
Entries will be judged (blind) by our very own punk poet, Versification contributor Lisa Lermer Weber, and Managing Editor Sara Dobbie.
We can’t promise the winner glory or fame, but we can give them:
1) A dedicated post on our website with an author bio and photo
2) A cool $20
3) Our staff will promote the winner on Twitter until they can’t see straight
Oh – Think you might lose? Second and third place get a coveted spot in the next monthly issue!
Listen, REGULAR submissions are always free, but hey, this is a CONTEST and we are paying the winner 20 bucks so they can buy something fancy.
To enter, we’ve set up for $2.00 in our “Buy me a Beer” fund for exactly that purpose (details below).
We get it, times are tough, so if you have an issue with the fee, get in touch with our Editor-in-Chief via Twitter DM at @diefunnier.
