Poetry Fishbowl Report for April 5, 2016

This month's theme was "Changing Society from Within."  I worked from 12:30 PM to 4:30 AM, so about 14 hours allowing for breaks.  I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday and another 13 later in the week.

Participation was good, with 52 prompts on LiveJournal and another 31 on Dreamwidth.  Please welcome new prompters DW user Alatefeline and The Magp'cat Duchess of Filkhaven.  You have them to thank for the second freebie.

All currently sponsored poems from this session have been posted.  There were five donors this time:  janetmiles, DW user Capriuni, DW user Alatefeline, Anthony and Shirley Barrette.  Please welcome new donor DW user Alatefeline.

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "To See by Hero-Light" is the free epic.  This was the third tally for the $250 goal, so there will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, April 19 in An Army of One.
