The last few months I have been busy with rewrites for my next poetry book.
And while I've been revising and waiting from notes from my editor, I've been recording myself reciting some of these poems from my next book for poetry contests on a website called Indi.com.
This is a really fun website where they post all kinds of challenges for poetry, rapping, cooking, filmmaking, songwriting, singing, comedy, etc... You can win cash prizes, meetings with casting directors, a platform to perform and other prizes.
There are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners who are determined by who gets the most votes. And then there is the coveted "Judges Pick" which has nothing to do with how many people voted for you, but just you winning by your own merit.
Last month, I just happened to win the "Judges Pick"
