Thank you for submitting your work to The Midwest Writing Center’s Mississippi Valley Poetry Contest. We are pleased to announce that our preliminary judges have chosen the top 25 poems in each of our two categories (national and regional) for publication in the 2011 edition of Off Channel.
We are also very pleased to inform you that your poems “Here right here is where” and “Learning How to Paint Light” have been selected as part of the qualifying group of national finalists.
From these 25 poems in each category (your work included), our final judges will soon select the winners, who will be notified by July 15, 2011.
Please inform us immediately upon receipt of this letter if you need to withdraw your work from consideration / publication due to acceptance elsewhere.
