first runner-up

Posted by Daniela Elza on Jul 10 2014

It was already exciting that I was in the top five shortlisted pieces for the Magpie Award for Poetry. And now it is official: I am the first runner-up. That is like second place, right? Delighted. Also you can read the judges comments as well on the site.

Thank you to judge George McWhirter (and to other judges involved) for selecting this sequence of poems. They are dear to me.

It was fun to read them at Poetry in the Park (in New Westminster) yesterday, while the winners were being announced (in Vancouver).
