In just six lines in a single sentence, Krystal Nikol of Detroit has produced a poem of immense power. It was one of three winning poems in our One Sentence Poetry Contest, a contest we’ll repeat for the winter issue, opening for entries in mid-August.
Our “Poem of the Week” is a preview of the summer issue of 3rd Wednesday, now at the printer. It’s one of three winning poems from the 3rd edition of our popular “One Sentence Poetry Contest”. It’s the second win for Michigan poet, Jane Wheeler, who can pack a lot of story into a single sentence.
Our “Poem of the Week” is one of three winning poems from this year’s Annual Poetry Contest. Contest judge Robert Fanning said, “…what made these winning poems shine was a line or an image that astonished me, diction that flickered with deeper meaning, and an ear tuned to the extraordinary music of language.”
Our Winter issue includes poems from our Second Ever One Sentence Poetry Contest, including this one, one of three winning poems chosen by our editors from among the nearly three hundred poems that were entered. We’re already looking forward to our Third Ever One Sentence Poetry Contest, beginning in Mid-February.
