Merit Winner: "Leftover" in Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest
Each year, two respected Whatcom poets select 10 Walk Winners and 15 Merit Winners. Walk Winners have their poems showcased outside the Bellingham Library for a year, and all of the winners get their poems displayed inside WTA buses alongside corresponding illustrated placards + published in a chapbook. Fingers crossed, we'll all be able to read our poems at a public awards ceremony in October as well.
I do not *at all* consider myself a poet, so I'm ecstatic to be among the Merit Winners this year -- many thanks to the contest organizers, and looking forward to seeing all of the lovely art and reading all of the winning poems soon!
EDIT: You can now view the poem and corresponding poster here!
