Satirewire's 2nd Annual Poetry Slam Spam

| Arts Extra Special

Satirewire's 2nd Annual Poetry,SatireWire
Last year we showcased the winners of SatireWire's Poetry Contest; this year we're ahead of the curve. If you need to express your feelings about all the spam in your inbox, here's your chance. Between now and midnight December 31, you can enter your best haiku, sonnet or villanelle about the trials and tribulations of spam. The contest separates the entries into two categories: Strictly Spam, in which you must use exact phrases from spams, and Freestyle, in which you wax poetic about those lovely messages. Last year's Freestyle winner created Shakespam, a parody of Hamlet's famous soliloquy. 'Neither a forwarder nor a spammer be; For spam oft loses both itself and friend; But, soft! what message through yonder inbox comes?' Emily Briggs from Ann Arbor, Mich. writes. 'It is the spam, and is the sender.' For a little comic relief and inspiration, check out the other winners and the contest rules. Good luck!
