Learning to Cope Poetry Prize (Rondeau Redouble)
Sponsored by the Rondeau Roundup Blog

Dear Entrants:

I received so many fine examples of this complex form that I had to invent new categories for the winning poets:

Winner: $100 and publication on the Rondeau Roundup Blog
Toni Clark, for “Rondeau Redouble: Final Stage”

Finalists:  $25 and publication on the Rondeau Roundup Blog
Susan MacLean, for “Learning to Cope”
Tom Hunley, for “God’s Lonely Man”
Uche Ogbuji, for “Hellgate”

Publication Awards: Publication on the Rondeau Roundup Blog:
Tiel Aisha Ansari, for “How Our New Immigration Policies are Like the Bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef”
Joan Wiese Johannes, for “A Blooming Scandal”

I so enjoyed reading these poems—the level of craft was so very high!  Thanks to all the folks who submitted poems for consideration.

The poems will be on the blog throughout the month of May.

Thanks so much,
Allison Joseph, Editor
