The 2014 Contest Results are In!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2014 League of Minnesota Poetry Contest. Many of the judges made comments on how it was hard to decide because of the quality of entries. Congratulations to all our winners and to everyone who put their poetry on the line and entered the contest. That alone is no small feat. We would like to extend a special gratitude to the sponsors of the contest which are listed with each category. This contest would not be possible without their generosity.
It was a joy to hear the poems read at our Fall Convention, and look forward to next years results. We hope the contest encourages you to write more poems. We look forward to hearing them at our LOMP Fall Convention next year and hope you will join us. Make sure to keep an eye on our calendar for the Spring Convention, the Woodtick Retreat, local chapter meetings, and the Blizzard Retreat coming up the last weekend in January. They are all great ways to keep the poetics waxing. Until then, keep reading, keep writing, keep editing, and enjoy the company of your fellow poets.
