Thank you, 2011 Spring Poetry Runoff participants!

RodneyLoughWaterfalls

I’d just like to say again how, in both quantity and quality, this year’s Spring Poetry Runoff exceeded my hopes. I’m deeply grateful for everyone’s participation and consider hosting such an outpouring of spring passion a high honor.   Seeing writers come together to play and ply their craft has been inspiring, and my hopes for Mormon nature writing received quite the lift.   Fine work, people, and €”for me, at least €”some of the best fun around.   Slow-release wonder and other good effects of the Runoff linger still.

So many, many glad thanks to:

A great group, and we’ll have to think of something really cool to do with such a glittering array of verse.

  1. Hi, Patricia– It was a great pleasure to participate and read the fine work of so many excellent poets. I have been very busy with my job, editing a book of Karen Kelsay’s poems, and editing a new anthology to be released soon. Hence, I haven’t had time to sit and read or visit sites as I would like. However, I wanted to take a second and thank you for the fine work you do here in providing a respite where one can enjoy poems about Nature, and for the Spring Runoff, which was a lovely event.
