If you missed the live broadcast yesterday, you can still listen to it and hear all the poets that placed in the top ten spots. You may recognize several of the names, and some called in to read their poems as well.
I’m honored to have received the 2nd place award! Every poet who entered will receive a prize from the many contest sponsors. Two lucky poets will receive the first issue of Orogeny–the poetry journal of the group I co-founded earlier this year, Rock Canyon Poets.
First Place: M. Brett Gaffney, awarded $447.50 for “Goldilocks“
Second Place: Trish Hopkinson, awarded $268.50 for “Footnote to a Footnote” [listen here]
Third Place: Helen Townsend, awarded $179.00 for “Three Wishes“
