#4: Rebecca Whitman
“Moment of Truth”
And congratulations to everyone who participated! There would be no contest without your support.
This is the first time we’ve had such a diverse group of winners!
We even have winners from India and Nigeria! Can you guess who it is?
We ultimately chose our winners for receiving high scores in several areas, including beauty, power, education/message, originality, creativity, how closely they followed the submission requirements, and overall impact.
I am incredibly proud of what they will bless you with in these coming weeks!
I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a special thank you to my team!! Thank you for recommending poets, posting the flyer to your social media, providing feedback, and all that good stuff!
Over the next few weeks, we’ll spotlight each of these poets individually on the blog and social media. We’ll dig deeper into what inspired their poem, read the winning poem, and understand their writing process.
