Great Big Little Poems Contest Winner

Earlier this week I received word that a tanka I wrote was chosen as a winner for the Every Day Poets Great Big Little Poems Contest.

For those unfamiliar with the Japanese form of Tanka, click here and also read some fantastic works over at American Tanka. My work is an American version of the poetic form.

7 winners in all were chosen for the week long event beginning on July 8th featuring Jennifer Stakes, Chen-ou Liu, Kent Reed, Angel Zapata, Maeve Heneghan, Jody Costa, and Marion Clarke.

Please do stop by each day. Works will also include other Japanese forms of poetry: Haiku, Senryu, and Haibun.

My congrats to all of the winning writers. Many thanks to editor Constance Brewer and all the other judges.
