Funny Writers: Twit-Wit Contest Win a Poem from Me!

Daniel Smith (aka @smithereensblog on Twitter) is running a great new Twitter contest:

Write your best example of witty wordplay in 140 characters or less and post it on Twitter to enter, then drop the link along with the full-text into the comments below (but be sure to read the 5 rules at the bottom of this post first!)

And because Daniel’s a great guy, I thought I’d help him out with a one-of-a-kind prize!

Let yourself be pampered by the poetic prowess of How Not To Write’s Jamie Grove, who has kindly offered to write an Ode to the winner and post it on his blog (along with a link to your blog if you have one.) Take a look at the one he wrote recently for James Chartrand at the Men With Pens blog, and let me know if this should remain filed here under awards or if I should create another category for cruel and unusual punishment. At Smithereens, the readers decide!

Ok, admittedly this is not much of a prize. After I wrote my Ode to Good King James Chartrand of Men with Pens, most of the comments agreed with Daniel’s statements above. However, there are plenty of other great prizes you may actually want. 🙂

Can You Put the Wit in Twitter? – Rules, Prizes and More!

P.S. The contest ends 7 pm EST on Wednesday June 18th so hurry!
