We've finally squashed a nasty bug in our new contest system that was keeping us from announcing the winners, so without further ado, here they are!
1st place, $50 gift card to Amazon.com:
Circus's careful attention to rhythm and meter highlights the powerful imagery that forms the core of this excellent poem.
2nd place, $25 gift card to Amazon.com:
Josiah takes us along on a ride with Kesey by playing with the visual layout in this piece. This is what poetry by Hunter S. Thompson might look like.
Stewart's quick and to-the-point take on the American dream is both fascinating and unnerving. The repetition in the opening and close drive the point home beautifully.
Congratulations to all of our winners, and remember, there's still time to submit an entry to the October Writing Contest!
