Over at the American Scholar, David Lehman has been mid-wife (?) to a crowd-sourced sestina. The poem is nearly finished. Here's what he has to say about the sestina-to-date:
I am usually a decisive person, but the entries this week were so solid that I found myself hemming, hawing, flipping, and flopping until finally and quite impulsively I chose Angela Ball’s candidate for stanza six, composed (she tells us) “to follow Christine Rhein’s lovely stanza.”
This solves two problems, at least tentatively, as I can now summarize our efforts in a six-stanza sestina lacking only a three-line envoi and a title.
