BECOME THE SHAKESPEARE OF CRIME!
Or, rather, the Capone of poetry. For our next contest, we're calling you out to write poems in a niche category of poetry--the crime poem. That is, poems about crime. Everything from arson to extortion to murder to zebra-napping, true to fictional. Written in the asinine MO. Can you do it? Are you chicken? Give it a shot. Whatcha got to lose?
Our guest judge: Tim McLoughlin, the Godfather of Noir and author of Heart of the Old Country. He also edited Brooklyn Noir, first in the Akashic Publishing's Noir Series, as well as Brooklyn Noir 2.
