Just missed out on the prizes one more time: this time my poem “Undine” was one of six “special mentions” outside the top three in the Sentinel Literary Quarterly competition. The judges’ report said: “I will mention a few that made a powerful impact on us that may on another day for other judges have made a prize. “Undine” was a beautiful sensuous poem that makes a swim into stripping down of social identity.”

It looks like there’ll be an anthology, so that’s something. Must try harder, though.
