We devoted this entire issue to the results of our prose poetry contest, which received hundreds of submissions and carried a prize of $500. Our two honorable mentions include work by Lucy Biederman and a detective poem from Christina Olson. A long poem by C Dylan Bassett, an address by Jenny Boychuk, and a Chinese-model prose rhapsodic poem by Jen Hyde were each named as finalists; with Diane LeBlanc as our grand prize winner.
