I got an amazing, wonderful phone call today! Every year, North Carolina State University has a state-wide poetry contest, open to anyone who has not yet published a book of poetry. They pick three winners: a grand prize winner, an undergraduate winner, and a graduate student winner. A few weeks ago, I got an email letting me know I was one of the fifteen finalists being considered for the prizes. Well, today I got a call letting me know that I am the winner of the undergraduate poetry prize! I’m so excited I’m dancing around the room! Also, my friend Spencer won the grand prize, an awesome accomplishment for an undergraduate student!
You can see the full list of winners and honorable mentions on State’s website, here.
