78 Utah poets entered our Second Annual Poetry Contest, providing us with hundreds of potential poemballs! While the new wave of poemballs is still forthcoming, Paisley Rekdal has already chosen the winners for our poetry contest.
First prize goes to Amy Brunvand for her poem “Dear Bonneville Cutthroat.” Second prize goes to Tacey Atsitty’s “Lacing IX,” with Steven Duncan’s “Pest Control” as runner up.
Thank you to all poets for sharing your work with us! We loved reading your poems. Special thanks to our judge, Paisley Rekdal, and to Lisa Connors for her work in facilitating the contest.
