Tragedy! In the midst of his latest ode, Augustus Whittlesby has broken his quill. For some strange reason, no one appears willing to lend him another.
Will you help a pen-less poet? Your task, should you choose to accept it, is this: write a few lines of verse for Augustus.
Your verses can be on any topic you like (pink carnations, the Pink Carnation series, short dictators, root vegetables), any style, and any length. Go wherever the muse takes you– provided that the muse is amusing.
All entries are due by Tuesday, October 11. For the fun of having a grand unveiling, please email your entries to me, rather than posting them in the Comments section. I’ll post all the entries here on October 12th and open it up to general voting, with the winner to be announced on Wednesday, October 19th. The winner, two runners-up, and one judge chosen at random will all receive advance copies of The Garden Intrigue, featuring none other than Augustus himself.
