Sideshow: The synergy of poetry and technology

September 1, 2010

Something delightful to file under “When poetry and technology play nice together”

But don’t you dare just file it! Sage Cohen, one of our sideshow barkers, needs you to submit your poems. Here’s how you can “take your poetry viral:”

Want to see your poetry appear in a poem-a-day iPhone app? Submit up to three, 20-line poems that express the spirit of “the life poetic” to “The Life Poetic iPoem Contest” before November 1. The contest, which is sponsored by Sage Cohen, author of Writing the Life Poetic: An Invitation to Read and Write Poetry and The Productive Writer: Tips and Tools for Writing More, Stressing Less and Creating Success, offers a range of prizes with a total value of more than $400. Visit this post for details!

Check our About page for a list of other Sideshow Barkers, friends of Big Tent Poetry who are generous enough to share with us their columns, interviews and reviews. There is no set schedule for these appearances; willy-nilly is a symptom of creative genius!
