Attencion!

Firstly, as with our NaPoWriMo, we thought this would be a great place to discuss our classics, thus keeping the competition and poll threads as clean as possible.  However, we have flooded all threads today to alert entrants to the publication of their winning pieces on our website. We want to ensure it's seen, and apologize for the flooding.

Secondly, we're putting the final touches on the Classic Corner edition of our website.  Each comp will look like the screenshot above.  The icons will link back to your winning poems.  If ANY previous CC winner, or current competitor, does not wish to be on featured, please message us immediately.

You can view the site updates here:  http://poeticmedics.com/index.html

We've only added winners to Gibran and Addonizio as examples for you to view. We will be adding the rest this week.  It is our hope that this will give you more exposure as a writer and drive fresh members to the site.  Many of our NaPoWriMo participants experienced double and triple views on their featured NaPo Poems.  

While your poetry will not be featured on our alternative social platforms - the link to our classic comps will.  

A huge heads up to Johnny for working so hard to have this completed by June ( or, should I say tolerating my design preferences alterations ).

I just returned, having checked everything now that itís complete.  And Iím in a daze...

THAT is the most AWESOME THING to SEE!  It gives me a clearer, overall perspective. And to better appreciate the scope, and the impact, and the number of Classic Corner events weíve done all total so far!

And the aesthetics of the project with all of Johnnyís renderings, itís all so complete... to also include the non-entry poems of the co-hosts.

Bravo to you both - for making it ALL possible!

Thanks, Jade. If there was EVER a testament to Johnny's love and patience with me it was through this. LOL!  On the flip side - he makes all my dreams come true.  💜😘💋

They are mostly Ahavati's ideas - I do my best with the Jurassic tech skills I have. It's our hope that it brings you and the other participants extra readers.

Greetings, Classic Competitors -

The central purpose of these classic competitions is to generate enough entries to create a theme-page for the featured poets.  Many are not editing their themes to include the respective poet's hashtag after the competition has closed; therefore, the theme pages aren't being generated.  

The system is designed to automatically generate theme pages after only 8 entrants have added the respective poet's theme.  We have ample entrants, but aren't certain they're seeing the reminder to edit their themes.

After discussing this with Webmiss, we have decided to implement the themes PRIOR to the competitions; therefore, SEPTEMBER'S new guidelines will require the theme be selected upon entry in order for it to qualify for the competition.

Please, double-check your previous entries to ensure you have edited your themes to include the poet you are honoring with a tribute.  It would be a shame for them not to have their own respective Page of Honor.

Thank you, as always, for supporting the Classic Corner.  

EDIT: Please be sure to vote in next month's poll. We have a tight three-way tie between the top contenders.  The winner will run alongside our female featured poet, Rupi Kaur.

Thank you to all who have entered the Classic Corner so far.  We've really enjoyed reading the entries.  Please edit your entry themes to include #AnneSexton and #E.E.Cummings, as Webmiss has already created this month's hashtag.  Thank you again for your entries and to Webmiss for her hard work.

Please be sure to vote in next month's poll. We have a tight three-way tie between the top contenders.  The winner will run alongside our female featured poet, Rupi Kaur.
