Final Corpse of the Year

I tried to go on holiday vacation and let the corpse rest until the new year but lines are coming in my inbox anyways, so let’s do this. This will be end of the corpses for 2018.

The old year will die with his final verse. I’m especially excited to see how this one turns out. Some of the lines coming in are giving me chills! Soooo…. despite what I said yesterday…

Submit your line now for the final Exquisite Corpse of the year. Send me your line via email—angelayurikosmith@gmail.com with EXQUISITE CORPSE in the subject line.

Please add your line and your name as you would like it to appear to the body of the email. Deadline is December 30th. The poem will be posted on December 31 to sing out the old year.

The names of contributors will be added in order of contribution. I’d also like to include our poem in my next poetry collection, Altars and Oubliettes.

And there will be a prize! I have made a few necklaces that contain real dirt sustainably harvested from Edgar Allan Poe’s original grave site—the perfect lucky charm for horror writers.

I’ll pick one line at random and send the creator a necklace in a gift box. Congratulations to Tawny Kipphorn for winning last time!

Aaaaand… in case you don’t know, an Exquisite Corpse is a collectively assembled poem. You can read more about them here.
