Love And Loss Contest Judged - New Contest 'First Poem On Soup' Posted
Blog Posted:1/25/2014 2:54:00 PM


The results of the contest are now posted. I delayed posting them for a day or two out of respect for Linda-Marie; I didn't think it was really appropriate to post poems on love and loss while people were coming to terms with the sad news. I was only able to glean 9 winners this time around, but I am very happy with those winning poems, each capturing a different aspect of love and loss. Thanks to everybody who participated :)

My new contest is now posted and the requirement is simple: I am asking for the very first poem you posted on the Soup. See my contest page for more info. Looking forward to reading your early work!

    Don 't know really what you were looking for? It is an unbelievable judgement! I constantly laugh at the results.
