Picture me smiling. I awoke this morning, the first of the New Year, to discover I had won the Goodreads.com January 2017 Poetry Contest with my poem The Things I Learned as a Bartender.
My success here encourages me to dive even deeper in my writing and strive to uncover, to examine, the seemingly insignificant details in our lives so often overlooked that help us understand ourselves – and one another.
My fellow finalists are all gifted artists: I am proud to be among them.
Thank you to the Goodreads judges and to everyone who took the time to participate.
Let’s make 2017 amazing. Are you in?
