The Midwest Writing Center’s 2011 Off Channel Mississippi Valley Poetry Contest has come to a close, and our judges (Brandi Homan, regional, and Don Cellini, national) have made their decisions.
I have the pleasure of informing you that your poem “Here right here is where” won honorable mention in our national contest. Congratulations!
To have made it to the top 25 in each category is in itself a compliment to your work, but, of course, having a winning poem means you’re at the very top of the
heap. We are thrilled to be able to print it in our anthology because it raises the bar for next year’s contest and anthology, and it continues to build the reputation for quality poetry we are striving to achieve at Off Channel.
Your copy of Off Channel will be sent shortly.
Visit our website, www.midwestwritingcenter.org , periodically for contest updates, and please feel free to enter our contest next year when we will have a new set of judges.
Best wishes and congratulations,
225 E. Second Street, Suite 303
