Introducing the O Sweet Flowery Roses First-Annual DJANGO Award

O Sweet Flowery Roses' one-year-of-existence anniversary is coming up, and what better way to celebrate than to present to you our first-ever DJANGO Award! The Dazzlingly Jewel'd And, Naturally, Gloriously Official Award is a contest open to any poet up until APRIL 1st, 2009. The award, an honest to goodness bag of hand-crafted jewelery donated by OSFR alum and artist of all trades Shannah Schilit, will be judged by the OSFR staff and guest judge Sean Lyman Frasier. The rules are simple: please submit one poem about/responding to/invoking the theme TEMPTATION. After all, what's more tempting than a bag of jewels for you or yours? There are no restrictions on length, form, meter, etc. The deadline is April 1, 2009. Please send just one poem and a short author bio, including postal and email addresses to: What other poetry journal keeps whets your appetite for both emerging poets and poetics AND shiny, shiny bling? Submit to this contest now! -Russell Jaffe Editor-in-Chief
