Tonight, April 30th, the Community Room of the Lunenburg, MA Library was filled with proud parents and excited teens as well as the usual enthusiastic poetry readers. There was a poem or two to please everyone in the audience. Lyrical, dramatic and humorous poetry kept the audience awake and sometimes on the edge of their seats. But the most enthusiasm was showered on the high school poets who won the Louise Bogan 2012 Poetry Contest.
The winners are: Brittani Stronionis, Honorabale Mention; Karissa Collins, Third Place; Jezrielle Bruno, Second Place and Emily Holman, First Place. Everyone who entered the contest will have their poems returned with remarks from the judges. The Louise Bogan Chapter of the Massachusetts State Poetry Society thanks all those who attended the poetry celebration, especially the contest entrants and invites them to submit poems again next year. The rules will be posted on this site in 2013.
