Weekly Contest #4RemindersWeekly Contest #4 by silver-ships-fly
This is are last week of NaPo & I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a little bit of writers block. If you're running out of ideas, check out yesterday's prompts.
The contest from week 3 is now closed! The winner will be announced on Friday.
The gallery folder for week 4 is open, so please submit poems #22-30 there!
Want to donate to the prize pool for all the NaPo winners? Send HillsOfMyst a note! We're really low on prizes and we'd love to have some fun things to offer to the winners. Features, points, llamas, comments, and faves are all welcome! (keep in mind last year there were about 35 winners!)
