For the last number of years I’ve entered the Utmost Christian Writers Poetry Contest. It’s an international contest out of Edmonton. In 2004 I took home 3rd prize, which was a nice honour. Each year the poems get better and better.
I was pleased to learn this weekend that my poem “Together We Examine My Heart, Seven Years Later” was shortlisted for the contest (and won a bit of cash – that I will probably use to replace my stolen bike).
You can read my poem, and other prize winners here.
