Cinquain poetry competition shortlist (Writing Magazine)


I was surprised and thrilled to be shortlisted in a Writing Magazine poetry competition looking for cinquains – five-line poems with lines of 2, 4, 6, 8, and 2 syllables.

It was the first poetry competition I’ve entered and it was especially nice to read that judge Alison Chisholm felt that “any of the shortlisted poems could have been winners”.
