One Last Thought...

...that I can't quite shake. I don't want this whole situation to adversely affect the poet who was named as the new winner of that contest. It's not her fault that this happened, and she didn't know what she was getting herself into, as this story wasn't public. She's a poet who just wants what we all want--to get her poems out there and let them speak for themselves. So do me a favor--read her book, if it strikes you. And after you do, pass it on.

And with that, I am Officially Done with this whole thing.

another poet sent me a copy of your story. kudos to you for fighting them. good for you to expose this. Perhaps the contest judge should have something to say about this sordid tale. kjm

keep fighting /your manuscript deserves much better. and good move in absolving runner up in the caper.
