Remember our exquisite corpse from last month? You can find him at Exquisite Corpse | Space and Time Magazine. I’m getting ready to put together August’s corpse and we have room for a few more lines. The theme is revolution, so I look forward to a revolting corpse. I’ll post the finished corpse next Saturday, August 10.
I’ll accept lines until August 7. Please note: the way to submit has changed. Please submit everything through this form. That helps me keep it organized. And again, the theme is revolution.
Thank you to everyone who participated last month. There will be a prize again. Winner is drawn at random and has nothing to do with the work submitted.
The winner for last month—which I forgot to post—was Marge Simon. Congratulations Marge! Her goodies were sent off before I remembered to take a photo. This month, let’s do another Edgar Allan Poe grave dirt necklace as a prize. It makes a great lucky charm for dark writers.
What’s an Exquisite Corpse?
An exquisite corpse poem is created by different people giving a line unrelated to the previous line. A poem is built from many authors, often following the same rule or theme. In this case, there are no rules but there is a theme. Also, it is a line, so no paragraphs please. You can read more about them here.
