Ottawa Poets A-Twitter



The “Ottawa Poets A-Twitter Contest” ran from April 6-16, and now the results are in!

Local authors Rob Mclennan and Christine McNair had the challenging task of sifting through the 35 submissions and choosing the winning entries. Without further ado, in no particular order, these are the winners:

JC Sulzenko: April / Winter conspires with Spring / in a caprice of snow. / Robin-red on white, / their pennant defies the sun to shine.

40-Watt Spotlight: He was sorry, but not like she thought. He was wrong, but not like she thought. They were happy, but not like they hoped.

Pearl Pirie: Lacing showier air-holes. latticework, let us work lettuce work, rabbitting puckered verbs, smocked nouns between needlings

The winners received a prize pack provided by the Friends of Ottawa Public Library.
