Great News!

I’m thrilled to report that my poem “Ladies’ Night Out” was one of 57 finalist poems for the Montreal International Poetry Prize 2022 and will be published along with the winner and other finalist poems in a contest anthology! My poem can be read here 

I did share this news in a Facebook post a couple of weeks ago when I briefly had wifi. I am still away on our boat but at last have some consistent wifi coverage! The winner was announced yesterday and you can read her poem and the judge’s commentary here 

It’s a win-win in my book when a contest (and this was a big one with a huge purse) offers publication to the finalists as well as the winner. My poem is one dear to me, I’ve tweaked it a few times over the years and I’m so pleased it finally gets to go out into the world in such an honorable way.

  1. Hi Lynne,

    Congratulations on your news. I appologize that so far I have only read the poem quickly. Clearly it is very well written and very good but my intention is to spend some time with it, get to know it better and have more to say. Congratulations again. Hope all is going well for you.

    I still write occasionally and shoot some of them off into the ether.

    1. Oh Dan, thank you for your comment, I appreciate so much that you want to take your time reading it! All is well but I’ve literally just stepped off our boat after a month away (with little wifi access) so there’s lots to catch up on (like others’ blogs etc) and more actual writing! I did manage to finish reading a few books though! Glad you’re still writing, I look forward to your next “shoot” (words and photographs lol).
