Two of my poems are currently in a competition on bookhabit.com, sponsored by the New Zealand Poetry Society. It'd be great to have my readers and friends go to http://www.bookhabit.com/competition/ and register for FREE in order to vote for my poems. (clicking on the post title will also take you there...)
Once registered, the site's users get to award points to the poems currently in the race. My entries are:
1. HULLABALOO BY THE LAKESIDE
2. MY FIRST DYING MAN
An advantage with bookhabit.com is that you can upload your own book or poetic work and wait for excellent peer review. Besides, there are a lot of other cool things you can do by connecting with writers and poets on that web site.
So please vote! Cannot post the poems here now because rules forbid me.
