Judge Ellaraine Lockie comments on the winning entries

Traditional poetry forms have had a blockbuster year in the 2015 Contest. The winners’ list includes: two sonnet crowns, two sestinas, a villanelle, a palindrome, a pantoum, an elegy, three ekphrastic poems, and two poems with such distinct and unique construction as to be classified nonce forms. Read our press release announcing the winners.
