Casting Bricks – Jilly’s August Challenge

Casting Bricks

Jilly’s August Challenge

Let the Collaboration Begin!

Welcome My Poetic Friends!  The NEW Casting Bricks Challenge is now open for the month of August.  I am so excited about a new round of collaborative poetry.  The July Challenge was a huge success, we had a great deal of fun, connected with other poets, and were stretched in our writing skills.  Based on the feedback and interest expressed, we are here again for a new set of poems.  Here is how it works:

  1. Write a half poem and post it to your blog with a link or tag back to this page (Jilly’s August Challenge).
  2. If your Challenge poem is a form (sonnet, quadrille, etc.) please state as such and give a quick review of the form or a link to a site that does that for you.
  3. Stop by here and add your Challenge link to our Mr. Linky.
  4. Find other Challenges that you would like to complete.
  5. Write the 2nd half of their poem and post the entire poem to your blog.
  6. Return here to our Mr. Linky again and post the link to that completed poem.
  7. You may also want to put a comment on the other person’s original Challenge post to let them know you have accepted their challenge.
  8. Spread the word! Extend the invitation to your other poet friends to join us.  We are a crazy, friendly bunch, after all!

NOTE:  In order to keep the links for Challenges (your half poem) different from the links for the Completed Poems, I suggest the following:  When posting your Challenge half poem, post the name you would normally use along with the word ‘Challenge’ behind it.  ex: Jilly Challenge.

When posting the link for a Completed Challenge, post your user name & the name of the person whose Challenge you completed.  ex: Jilly Colin  (if I am completing a challenge put out there by our good friend Colin Lee.)

Questions? Suggestions?   Just drop it into the Comments on this page and I’ll do my best to address it.

There is no expiration on our Mr. Linky, so feel free to post new challenges and completed challenges throughout the month.  Feel free to complete as many or as few challenges as you feel comfortable with.   Most importantly, have fun & flex your poetic muscles!   Cheers!  ~ Jilly

    1. Hi Laura! Glad you are joining in with Casting Bricks – the August Challenge. Thanks for completing my Bop, I’ll pop over and read it in a few minutes. Glad to see you posted it in our Mr. Linky, too! Hooray! If you would like to write a Challenge (half-poem) of your own and toss it out there, just put the link in Mr. Linky with the word Challenge behind your name. Other zany poets will write your 2nd half and post it. Would love for you to join in – we had a blast with it in July and decided to keep it going monthly. ~Jilly
