Alright so I got asked to open the poetry contest this week, and since I have an art show in exactly 3 hours that I haven't bought my outfit for yet, this post might get a little rushed.

The winners have been selected from last week, and I'm sure Lalo will post them soon. The theme this week is birth. Interpret that as you like, it can be the birth of an idea, literal birth, anything. As a side-note, as long as I am a judge extra points will be awarded for people who push the themes and concepts to new and difficult places. If you have obviously worked the concept over until you've achieved that intimate familiarity artists have with their subjects, then your score will reflect it.

As always, pm submissions to Lalodragon, Lostbookworm, or myself. Start..... now.

YES! YES! I'm exactly in a birth-ish mindset, right now.
