Crab Creek Review Poetry Contest Winners!

I believe I forgot to post this over the summer, but here's the list of winners and finalists for our Crab Creek Review poetry contest judged by the wonderful poet, Nancy Pagh (No Sweeter Fat).

And what I think is fab about our contest is that we are publishing all the winners, honorable mentions, & finalists in Crab Creek Review 2011: Issue 1!

  1. Hi Kel--The Honorable Mentions will also be published, yes? Those were the ones I especially admired from the whole batch of finalists. Every single poem from the group was a worthwhile read--I was delighted to see them all! --NP
