Recently, I was honored by tying for 3rd place in the 18 and under category of the Lincoln Poetry Contest! My poem “Land of Dreams” was submitted into the “Should we be thinking about today or tomorrow” category. Unfortunately, I could not attend the awards ceremony, as it was in Lincoln, California this past weekend. My poem was read there in my stead. There will be a chapbook released with all the winning poems, in which I will be included. I was elated when I found out – it is always nice to know that my poetry is accepted and appreciated.
