I am proud to feature a fine young poet, Christine Barba, this week. Be sure to stop by and check out her work. Just 19 years old and so talented.
Also I should be ready to post the winning poems sometime over the weekend or perhaps Monday, March 5, 2012, at the latest. We were privileged to get some very fine entries to the contest, I’m sure you’ll agree when you read them. I’ll be sure and post here as well as all over the Internet when the winners are available for you to enjoy.
This morning we announced the Eye On Life Poetry Contest 2011-2012 Winners and Honorable Mentions. They will be featured during in the first week in March on the Poetry Locksmith and Poetry Unlocked pages. Please stop by and see.
Before the end of the day today I will post a new poem by Donal Mahoney. Always worth checking out.
We will be announcing the winners of the third annual Eye On Life Poetry Contest tomorrow, Monday, February 20th. Do stay tuned 🙂
Now the Poetry Unlocked section of Eye On Life will feature audio recordings of poets who are kind enough to send us an audio file. Our debut into audio was made possible by Elizabeth Swados, who sent us our first mp3 files. Now you can stop by Eye On Life and not only read great poetry, but hear it, too.
Almost, almost done with judging the 2011-2012 Eye On Life Poetry Contest. Almost time to award the $100 first prize and $50 second prize the two books of poetry as third prizes. Almost.
But today we are featuring a poet new to Eye On Life, Elizabeth Swados. She sent us some great stuff! You should stop by and check it out.
Coming up next week, Donal Mahoney and hey, we might be announcing those contest winners.
Now that the deadline has past, it’s time to start judging the works of the poets who entered. Who’s judging? Not me. A panel of poets whose opinions I respect will score the poems. Their cumulative scores will determine the winners. Stay tuned.
