CV2 2 Day Poetry Contest

Arrg! I’m very displeased that I  missed the registration deadline for CV2 (The Canadian Journal of Poetry and Critical Writing). I’ve entered this contest before and really enjoyed it.

“This annual contest challenges you to write an original poem in 48 hours — with only one catch. The final poem must include ten words that we provide. These words are released at midnight CDT on Friday April 19th, 2019, leaving you 48 hours to use each of them at least once in an original poetry composition.

Prizes include cash, publication, and a copy of the issue containing the winners, not to mention a whole weekend of wordy entertainment.”


I guess now I’ll be socially obligated to spend the long-weekend with friends and family. Or I could just lie and say I entered the contest and camp-out in seclusion like and addict. There are worse things to be addicted to; like conformity?


I like apologizing to friends that call and invite me out; “sorry busy writing”…
