Sarah Russell’s poem was an entry and $100 winner in 3rd Wednesday’s recent One Sentence Poetry Contest. When we wrote to notify her, we told her that her’s was one of the worst run-on sentences we’ve ever seen, but that it served this prose poem perfectly.
Here is 3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week from the Winter Issue. In his cover letter David wrote: “I’m happy to see print magazines continue in the digital age, as I prefer to hold my reading matter in my hands than to look at a screen! I write because doing so hasn’t lost its meaning to me, and because I feel I’m in good company among (most) others who write.“
