Write your best Pie-Ku and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "PIE-KU." Deadline to enter is 5 p.m. Thursday, November 12.
We will publish our favorites and notify the winner ASAP. You will need to be available from 1 to 2 p.m. (with a little wiggle room on either end) on Saturday, November 21 — and you need to be ready to eat a lot of pie. (No dietary restrictions, please!)
