THE GUN O KU Poetry Contest Results are in!


Blog Posted:2/25/2013 7:23:00 PM
Hi Soupers! Please excuse the tardiness of posting the winners from my latest contest. I printed the entries a few weeks ago and have been reading and rereading some of the best entries EVER submitted in one of my poetry contests. What I was looking for in a winning entry was EMOTION--no matter where a poet stood on the gun issue.

Please take the time to read through each and every entry. I don't believe I have  enjoyed judging a contest MORE than this one. Hats off to everyone who put his or her pens to work expressing their first amendment right regarding the great gun debate. 


GREAT WORK, POETS!

Your friend,

Gwendolen
