National Poetry Month April 2013

Wednesday, December 28, 2005

Here's the big announcement-

Last night I received a phone call from editor WR Mayo from POESIA- A Literary Quarterly of Poetry and Poetry Reviews informing me I have been awarded First Prize in the Third Annual Oliver W. Browning Poetry Competition. My poem will appear in
the January issue and online and I will receive $500.00.

After years of writing, revising, rewriting, rethinking, submitting, waiting, WAITING, it is wonderful to be validated, even better to get a cash award.

Submit!
