Okay, so I’m up for a poetry challenge. I’m going to write three poems inspired by Bruce Springsteen songs...and try to get them published in an anthology due for release on the 23rd of Sept 2019, Springsteen’s 70th birthday. This is super exciting for me because I love writing poems about cars and roads and the edge of town.
So here’s the deal. I don’t have any clue which songs I’m going to write about, I need some help deciding.
You get to vote for the Springsteen song that you’d like me to write about. Any Springsteen song...
At the end I’ll tally up all the votes, take the three most popular songs and write poems inspired by them.
You get access to the google doc I’ll be using when I write the poems. This means that at any time over the three writing days you’ll be able to log in and spy on my writing process. You’ll be able to see every mistake, every reconsidered line break, every frustrated deletion. Who knows it might be totally riveting to watch someone write a poem, you might be so fascinated that it’s impossible to tear yourself away. I don’t know, but for 100 bucks you can join me on this rock n roll n poetry adventure.
