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. 


Your friend,
