It is with delight that I announce the winners of the Rondeau Roundup's Love Rondeau Contest!

More-than-Honorable Mentions went to the following poets. Each of these poets will have their rondeaus featured on the blog as well:

Tara Betts for "Spin Cycle"
Susan Elbe for "My, What Big Wishes I Had"
Marybeth Rua-Larsen for "It Isn't What I Thought"

Thanks to all those poets who entered the contest!

The Love Rondeau contest, sponsored by the Rondeau Roundup blog, has yielded 25 entries! Not bad for a first time contest.

Contest results will be posted on July 31. In addition to the winners, other rondeaus will be posted on the blog as more-than-honorable mentions.

The next contest sponsored by the blog will be a Autumn Rondeau contest. Deadline TBA. No fee to enter, as will be the case for all contests connected to this blog.
