An Impromptu Visit

You must include and rhyme the following words:

#mothermovemypen and tagging @bowerypoetry + @mothermovie

We’ll be choosing 5 winners who will each get 2 tix each to the film (Regal Cinemas anywhere in NYC AND 2 tix to the Bowery open mic or slam.

That’s it! You have until midnight on Friday. Your poems will be judged by award-winning poet and Bowery workshop teacher Janet Hamill, PoetNY OpenMic host Mason Granger, and a secret judge to be disclosed. Probably Jennifer Lawrence herself.
