Are you a fan of Sonya Sones‘ fab books? Of course you are; we all are! And What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know is one of her best. So if you’re a fan of What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know and you think you could write about what happens next after the story ends in Sonya’s cool verse style, why not enter the contest from Gotham Writers’ Workshop and Teen Ink. Here’s a sample from What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know:

My name is Robin.

This book is about me.
It tells the story of what happens
when after almost 15 pathetic years of loserdom,
the girl of my dreams finally falls for me.

That seems like it would be
a good thing, right?
Only it turns out to be
a lot more complicated than that

Because I’m not gonna lie to you —
there are naked women involved.
Four of them, to be exact.
Though not in the way you might think.

Don’t get me wrong — my girlfriend’s amazing.
But the way things have been going lately,
I’m starting to believe that the only thing worse
than not getting what you want,

is getting it.

So read the book, go to the website to find out the rules, and then write your own series of poems describing how you think the story should continue. The contest starts tomorrow, so get busy! Click here for the official rules.
