The winners of the SFPA contest have been posted. I didn't win anything, but I particularly recommend that you read the long form winner, "The Fugitive." It's an exceptionally good example of why free-verse poetry is not prose. In particular, look at the imagery and extended metaphors, and listen to the sound repetition.
"The Wordsmith's Forge" showcases the writing, editing, and other projects of Elizabeth Barrette. It also serves as a virtual living room for the discussion of diverse topics. Please pull up a cushion and join in.
