Every week we will challenge each other to write a poem or short prose piece with a set of constraints — some will be established poetic forms, and others will be silly things we make up. If you’re interested in joining the challenge by contributing your own work or would like to suggest a new challenge, email us at VersesVersusVerses@gmail.com.
