I went up against some sharp competition Friday night at the Highland Park Annual Poetry Pentathlon. Shout out to Bryce Johnson on a well-deserved victory.

There were five events in all (hence ‘pentathlon’):

  • The Pantoum (just google it)
  • The Epistle (letter in verse)
  • Poetry Potluck (perform another contestant’s entry)
  • Fairy Tale Poem (written from the viewpoint of a minor character in a fairy tale)
  • On the spot (prompt provided when you walk in)

I’ll publish my entries in separate posts now. Tell me what you think.
