My Poem Wins First Place & Two of my Essays Re-Published (1 Viewer)

Good things happening for me this month.

My poem, Deep Woman, won first place in a state poetry contest (a competition I like to enter every year). I received my prize money and will receive a free anthology (with all the winning poems included). What I found particularly interesting this time is that while only one of my poems won first place, eleven others ended up in the top ten in their categories. I like it that I had so many “almosts” this time.

OPEN: Journal of Arts & Letters re-published two of my essays.

Thank you, Carol (PiP), The Glasshouse, Terra, and Ibb. It feel so good to have a place to announce our writing successes and feels great to have a place where we can all root for each other. It's my news this time, and will be your news next time (if we all keep sending our work out). Write on!

Please ignore my post. I'm trying to learn how to reply with a quote from a previous post. (Next I'll try to learn how to highlight a member's name.)
