 The Institute for Bad Poetry

I tried to sum it up on the front page of the Institute, but if you wanted an introduction you couldn't do better than to blame it all on Chaz Clover. One day he suggested a bad FF haiku contest, and it struck a real chord among many of The chord ran so true that it wasn't long--10 January 1996, in fact--that Trevor Stone made the biggest mistake of his life---asking if anyone wanted to start a Magnetic Cow Haiku thread in response to a discussion of HK's cow-magentized tying table. I did, and the rest is, well, history.

One of the side attractions to membership in the Fly Fish Discussion List is the chance to show off your writing ability in the annual fiction contest. The reasons I started the contests were twofold ... in the fly fishing magazine trade, fiction pieces are virtually non-existent and I am a wannabe writer ... - Danny Walls
