EMILY VAN DUYNE
Beth Gylys said it best when she said, "I want to be clear, my top choice and bottom choice are not separated by miles, but rather by degrees of degrees." I hope each of you take Beth's words to heart.
Emily, you've earned a spot in the final two. Congratulations!
W.F. and Kathi, both of you are talented poets. Both of you have been active in the poetry scene before this contest, and I know you'll continue after.
I'm sorry, W.F., you are on permanent caesura.
