Driving My Daughter to School – Sarah Russell

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.

Official Business – Ted Kooser

Though he didn’t intend it for our recent One Sentence Poetry contest, 13th Poet Laureate of the United States, Ted Kooser, sent us this example of what a poet can do with a single sentence.  Our 4th One Sentence Poetry Contest opens for entries on August 15th.
