As stated in last month's poll, Due to the number of votes received, Rupi Kaur will be our featured female poet for September; thus, this poll reflects the need for a male counterpart.

You may also suggest a male poet for the next poll, which should be back to normal with both male and female poets.  Your vote is appreciated.

Here is a list of poets we have already held challenges about and earned themes for, so keep in mind there is no point in recommending them:

What can be done to change a vote?  I tapped on the wrong name. Thank you.

Not sure, Jade, That would be a question for Webmiss.  There might be a possibility Webmiss can change it if you message her.  Outside of that, unless there is a tie that needs broken, we can just manually count your vote toward your intention.

Thank you to all who voted!  Looks like it's going to be Eliot and Kaur in September!  Because Hughes was a close second, we will feature him in our male CC slot for October.  

Again, thanks to all who voted, and supporting the Classic Corner.

Sowwy!  Not sure who just voted for Hughes to tie Eliot, but the poll closed with my comment. We do appreciate your support of the Classic Corner.  

We've never had a poll this close before! You'll see Hughes in October! 📝❤

I voted, but i didn't read the comments on here beforehand. I felt Langston Hughes is such a great poet and most often overlooked.  Sorry if my vote shifted things.

We definitely appreciate your support, and wholly agree with you.  It was neck and neck while the poll was running. We weren't sure who it would be next month.  

I felt I needed to comment just to clarify to those who see it tied.  I am happy he will be featured in October.  Now to find the female to feature alongside him!
