Announcing the First International Poetry Contest for Disgruntled Lawyers
My forthcoming book, The Young Lawyer's Guide to Money and Power, will be released on October 31, 2003 by Secret Guide Publishing (www.secretguide.com). It's a 224-page mentor that will always be there for you, giving you courage and support during those dark hours when the partners are treating you like a broken-down appliance. This assumes you're working with Bad Partners instead of Good Partners, who really do exist but get (and demand) a lot less attention.
To celebrate, let's write some poems about our worst experiences with the law! Here's an example:
How I love my job
Writing memos all day long
I feel f@#*ing great.
You can write haiku, sonnets, free verse... everything is welcome. Just don't name names or write anything defamatory. That would be bad.
Deadline is October 31, 2003. The grand prize is a copy of THE YOUNG LAWYER'S GUIDE TO MONEY AND POWER. The runner-up will receive ONE CRISP AMERICAN DOLLAR BILL, suitable for framing. With incentives like these, how can you NOT enter?
Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. It'll be fun!
