NOTE: If you want to be part of the Invitational and have a chance to win a prize, do NOT submit your Little Willies to RuthlessRhymes (at least until after June 26th). If your Little Willie is published here prior to June 26th, you won’t be eligible for the Invitational.
The Empress of the Washington Post’s Style Invitational has invited her readership to write Little Willies.
There are several prizes to be awarded — and don’t think that the first place prize is the only desirable one.
The second place prize is my absolute favorite prize of all prizes ever.
Pop over to the Washington Post, read the rules, follow the rules, write a perfectly awful (only the “good kind” of awful) bit of verse and submit it to the Washington Post site.
Between now and June 26th, if you submit a Little Willie here, I’m going to surmise you don’t care about fame and fortune (as I offer neither) and publish it — disqualifying you from the Invitational.
Go forth and be gruesome.
