Win, lose or draw, my whatever poem is done and gone. I’ve forgotten when the voting starts but Ed DeCaria has been good about providing details so I’ll go back to his e-mails and read more carefully.
To all my fellow poets who are involved this year, break a leg. To Ed, thanks in advance for all the work.
To Naomi Williamson and all the wonderful folks who put on yet another stellar Childrens Literature Festival this year in Warrensburg, Missouri, my gratitude. It is always one of the hightest of my year’s highlights.
