Thank you for this, Toni. I didn’t actually notice it was posted on August 29, and imv it was workshopped into September, as Octogenarian considered and then took up suggestions, and edited it. It seems to me sometimes poems have straddled two months in their being active, meaning workshopped with a back and forth developing. But maybe I am wrong anout that. Hmm.
I took the video as a personal sharing, within the context of the workshop exchange, and not an promotion of its being “published”. BTW, I really do want to look into how to do this, so I hope, Octogenarian, you might feel like sharing a little more about that, in the Shipyards, and feel free to put the video link over there.
I hope we are not discouraging creating them, merely saying The Waters considers them as published, as fsr as the IBPC goes. )
But keeping to the Waters rule of a poem posted in a given month - if I have this right - being eligible only within that month, I don’t think FD’s poem is eligible either, then, is it? since it was workshopped in August also. let me double check. — yeah, Christmas was posted eighteenth of August. No wonder FD and I got so confused over whether he was in or out, getting our wires crossed. I still think it could use another couple changes, :) and it HAS been active, as far as i have experienced, into September. ..
I suppose I am lobbying. I started this September thread so soon, in order to be able to be sure and post it here, since it was not finished being workshopped, end of August, or so I felt, but my intention was to nominate it. So, you are saying Toni, a poem has to be finished being workshopped in the month it is posted, to be eligible? This was definitely not clear to me! Alrhough I suppose the heading “Nominations For Poems Posted in X” should have made it clear. Sorry, FD. I am sure some poems can get a very quick in and out, but others seems to take some ripening, like a fine wine. I felt the poem should be nominated, but also felt it could be perfected.In my eyes the poem is still being “workshopped”
through the month and until the final version is posted
in the IBPC thread. That was how I was seeing it, anyway.
