Thanks so much to everyone who participated in this
year's competition. Reading and evaluating close to
3,000 poems was an exhausting yet exhilarating
process. I believe we have found some special poems.
Kudos to our amazing readers for their insight and
dedication. We will begin taking entries for our seventh
annual Poetry Open in early September.
