First Place in, World Haiku Review - Just Wanted to Share :)

Blog Posted:5/16/2009 2:52:00 AM
<P>No, it's not about the hallmark contest, won't know about that until monday. :) BUT...</P> <P>I just found out I took First Place in, World Haiku Review Magazine, in the Vangaurd haiku category; as well as Editor's Choice! I know it's not much, but it sure made me feel appriciated. In writing, at least for me, along with acceptance and appriciation, so comes a heck of alot of rejection - so this really had me smiling. :)</P> <P>Here is the link, if anyone wants to read my little haiku and what the editor had to say about it.</P> <P><A href=""></A></P> <P>Thank goodness for this site and all the support. I'd have probably given up long ago if not for you guys (you know who you are) </P> <P>Love, Kristin</P>

    This is just a remarkable achievement. Keep smiling regarding your accomplishment and spread the great news. If you don't it fall on deaf ears. Knowing the rate of rejection for publication, I whole heartedly congratulate you for your wonderful and note-worthy success. Great job! ~Joseph

    Congratulations Kristen! This is wonderful news, I am so happy for you. Your poem is wonderful expressing lonliness and the invisable feeling that surrounds many of us on a daily basis. Well done. Great luck for continued success though I know your skill is truly all you need. Smiles from Lolita

    The Haiku is amazing my brilliant friend. We can be surrounded by thousands and still wander alone. Sad fact in life and you captured the aloneness so well in it. Wow. That you did that in so few words makes it that much more outstanding. Congrats to you. I am smiling and happy. Love you K! love me

    Awesome Kristin!!!!!!! Hip Hip Hooray for the amazing recognition, and the review is wonderful too! What a brilliant haiku.....the spirit of such a brief form! As Stacey mentioned...from someone who lives in Reynold's goes to show what a great imagination you have, to have that ability to dream of a lonely world!! Congratulations dear friend!!!

    Congratulation, my friend! I checked the haiku and the editor 's comment, You "should" be smiling! Being accepted and appreciated is always a great success, Kristin. Best wishes. Ruben.
