Winners announced in the January InterBoard Poetry Competition
In the first month of their term as judges for the InterBoard Poetry Competition, Dorianne Laux and Joseph Millar selected these winning poems:
In first place, “Eureka Springs” by Jude Goodwin, “a glorious re-envisioning of the famous two-million pound mortar and steel statue of Jesus of the Ozarks.8221;
In second place, “Snow” by Judy Swann, “a small, quiet poem that becomes larger and larger as it progresses.”
In third place, “Tiger, Tiger” by Mitchell Geller, “a clever, deft, mini tour de force” commenting on the recent public travails of Tiger Woods in a parody of William Blake’s iconic poem.
Laux and Millar also made honorable mention without comment of three more poems: “Wig” by Michael Harty, “Takazumi” by Bren Lyons, and “Post Apocalypse in Polo Park” by Don Schaeffer.
(You will remember that our Forum did not have any entries in this month’s competition—but as the February competition approaches, the Forum poets are busy nominating and polishing poems for entry. We will be back to report when our three February entries have been chosen.)
