Good news!

poetrynightAfter a couple of rather fruitless hours in the word room, I finally got around to opening my email and found good news waiting. It seems I’ve been awarded the 2016 Ken Warfel Fellowship!

I am so very grateful to poetrynight and to this year’s poet/judges: Angela Belcaster, C.J. Prince, Carol McMillan, Jim Milstead, Michael E. Bradley, Malcolm Kenyon, and Suzanne Carlson-Prandini. Apparently I will be expected to hold forth at the official announcement ceremony on Saturday, October 22, 2016, at the Mount Baker Theatre, here in Bellingham, Washington. See you there?

    This is huge! Congratulations, Judy! Unfortunately, I will be back in Alaska to pick up my grandson on the 22, but I’ll be with you in my heart. Wonderful accomplishment, poet/writer/artist/ETC. <3
