Update: 2023 poetry winners are now posted online. Read my poem “In the Woods” at https://www.westminsterartfestival.org/copy-of-2022-poetry.

Very pleasantly surprised that my poem “In the Woods” won third prize in the poetry category at the local Westminster Art Festival. I think they’ll eventually put the winning poems on line and I’ll post a link when that happens, but I’d encourage everyone in the Kalamazoo-Portage area to check out the festival exhibit. Lots of great visual art and they produced a booklet with not only the winning poetry but all submitted poems, including a second one of mine. They’re asking a small donation for the booklet, but the exhibit is free. Check out their web site for times they are open: https://www.westminsterartfestival.org/
