The Pathetic Book of Poetry - 04/08/2014
by V. Blake
Our very own Jody Pratt was cool enough to put together a book of poetry using submissions from Pathetic members. Read more about it in the forums--you can even just click this link if you're feeling lazy, so no excuses.
Thanks go out to Jody for his efforts and to everyone who submitted their work to make it possible. Go get yourself a copy!

Stop, Collaborate, and Listen Contest Results - 09/20/2011
by V. Blake
Well, the extended contest is over, and we have our results! Congratulations to our winners, and a sincere thanks to all the participants!

Everyone else! (Sorry. The submissions were too few to warrant runner-up selections!)
There wasn't a huge pool of submissions this time around, but all the ones we got were awesome. Thanks again everybody.
Stop, Collaborate, and Listen Contest - 08/28/2011
by V. Blake
Well, the initial closing of the contest was to take place last night, but as we've only had two submissions so far, I have decided to extend the date by a couple of weeks to give everyone some more time. I understand collaborations don't always get done in a neat schedule, so I am hoping this will allow for a bit more competition.

First Catch of the Season
by Erin Brown-John
What now, little fish,
you're struggling frantic
your fingers claw desperately at
there's panic in your
bulging eyes, your inflated
cheeks unable to scream.
But these things are easily fixed
You're in too deep, that's all
my hand around your hip
I reel you in
and when I release you to
the pool deck, you walk away
as if nothing happened.
