Introducing Judge #1: JAH

Joanne Haynes (also known as Joanne Allong-Haynes - JAH) is a writer who is inspired by motherhood, life and people. She is the winner of the Trinidad Theatre Workshop's Derek Walcott Children's Literature Prize (2005). Here's what she wants to share with you: I believe that writing is the stimulator and the balmer of the soul. I would like to see people using it more as a medium of expression, even outside of the realm of writing for publishing ... To use it as a tool for getting in touch with oneself.

On the topic of writing a poem for Diva, Joanne had this bit of advice: Get in touch with the Diva in you and free her ... or him.
I've decided to feature each judge separetely. Judge #2 will be introduced tomorrow.
To submit your 'Poem to Diva', CLICK HERE and post it in the comments section.
Don't be shy. So far two people have submitted. Also ... because of the long weekend, the deadline for submissions has been extended to midnight on Wednesday 19th April, 2006 ... with winners to be announced on Friday 21st April, 2006.
