I'm able to share my good news.
I won the Atlantic Monthly Student Writing Contest for my poem "When Killer Blue Irises Spread." The contest is for graduate students enrolled in colleges throughout the US.
This was the last year I could submit, so I'm thrilled to have been chosen. (Note to curious readers--of the three chances I had to submit--I missed the first deadline, was rejected the second, and as it turns out 3's a charm.)
Here's a list of all the winners in poetry, fiction, and non-fiction as well.
My poem will be in the summer fiction issue.
