I'm smiling...

because my friend Alvin's poem "From Coast to Coast" won first place in Utmost Christian Writers' first Canadian-only contest -- and my poem "Canadian Rivers" won an honorable mention. The theme was Canadian landscape.

Links to all winners here.

If you're a Christian writer of poetry who lives in Canada, you might want to check out Utmost's quarterly contests especially for Canadians.

If you're a Christian writer of poetry from anywhere, you'll want to go to Utmost's international site and find out about their big annual contest. Deadline for submission to that one is February 28/08.

For some excellent tips on entering poetry contests, here is some advice from Nancy Breen, editor of the Poet's Market published by Writer's Digest. Also check out the Poetic Asides blog.
