Congratulations to Lauren Brownless on coming first with her untitled poem in the 28 Word Poetry Competition and winning the $100 voucher from Readings and a copy of Verandah #27.
I am really happy to find my micro poem A Woman Waits is a runner-up along with Jenni Dixon’s Unstuck. We both get Verandah #27 and a $50 Readings voucher. Excellent. You can read all three poems on Wordly at http://deakinwriters.wix.com/deakinwriters
Submissions to the 28 word comp are also considered for Verandah #28. General literary submissions to Verandah remain open until June 1 by the way. There is a submission fee but I guess this helps keep the student-run journal going and they do have various prizes through the year.
