This month we feature poems from Parentheses Journal, SWWIM, BOAAT Press, Poets Reading the News, The Hellebore Press, and Juke Joint Magazine. Let us share in a holiday feast of words from the grocery aisle to the roast and sautéed greens with ice cream and peach cobbler for dessert, and Reynolds-wrapped leftovers for later.
Guest judge Kim Addonizio had a difficult time choosing from our exceptional finalists, all read blind, but in the end, she selected Cassandra J. Bruner to take the $3000 prize. Congratulations to Cassandra, and to all of our winners and finalists!
