This just in from Lorraine Walker Williams, dated June 29, 2018…
I am thrilled to announce that I am a GRAND PRIZE winner in the 25th Annual Artists Embassy International’s Dancing Poetry Contest for my poem, “Two Braids: A Sestina.”
My work will be honored by premiering my poem at the Dancing Poetry Festival. The Poetic Dance Theater Company is melding costumes, music and choreography to bring my poem to life on the stage on Saturday, September 15, 2018, at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in the neoclassical Florence Gould Theater, in San Francisco. A cash award and video of the performance are also part of this honor. It will be exciting to read there!!
My ArtPoem, “Barns,” received recognition as one of the 3rd place winners.
My poem, “Last Look,” which is based on my last day on Sanibel [Island, FL] in April, will be in the summer issue of Pen Woman Magazine.
