Voting is now CLOSED for the 2010 Numéro Cinq Annual Villanelle People’s Choice Competition. Gary, this time you cannot vote more than once (although if you are indecisive, you can change your vote). The judges are puzzling over what to do with David Helwig who wants to be considered in the Golden Age category. Also there are three entries from authors under 16. Since voters have already begun splitting their votes, we shall just continue except that the new “Barracuda Class” will be for authors under the age of 16 (Sage, Sarah & Julie Marden’s students Danny & Anibelys).
In any case, let popular opinion reign here. Remember that so far no one has been expelled from Numéro Cinq for over-indulgence of psychotropic drugs or expressing incorrect ideas.
The official entry list is here. Vote for your preference in the COMMENTS section below this post. Voting closes midnight next Saturday, May 22, 2010. Remember, ANYONE can vote!
And for your edification, I attach a photo of Hobbes which proves without a doubt that he is not fat as suggested in one of the entries.
