OH HAPPY DAY!






On Tuesday, I received this email that made me clap my hands and do the dance of joy.

 “CONGRATULATIONS! Your poem “What Am I?” won 9th place in the Writer’s Digest Poetry Awards. That’s quite an accomplishment.
 
Your prize includes $25 and a copy of 2011 Poet’s Market. Your name and poem title will be listed in the July/August issue of Writer’s Digest, and your poem will be included in the competition compilation.
 
Our competitions department will be in contact with you about getting your prize to you.
 
Let me know if you have any other questions.
 
Again, congratulations!”

 Thank you, Melissa Wuske, Associate Editor Writer's Digest Books & Writer's Digest Magazine. You made my day. And then some.

My face aches from all the smiling I’m doing.

Very sweet of you to say, but it's for my clumsy efforts at dabbling in poetry. Having fun is paying off.
