2nd Place winner in 2022 CWC Poetry contest!
On April 19th, I was ecstatic to learn that I won 2nd place in Charlotte Writers Club's 2022 Poetry Contest judged by noted poet David Radavich.
The winning poem, Touching Coltrane's Tenor Sax, is my loving tribute to NC-born jazz musicians and their work inspired by a trip to the NC Music Hall of Fame, where John Coltrane's tenor sax is on display.
I thank the CWC and judges for this incredible honor. This was my first contest win, and it is reassuring that my work resonates with people.
