JC’s suite of poems for children takes 1st place in the WrEN Award for Poetry

JC is delighted that the poems she submitted to the 2019 Writers-Editor’s Network WrEN Award for Poetry took first place in the poetry for children category.

JC had put forward 5 poems from her suite, “Pelican Circus,” also the lead poem. The other titles were: “The Pelican and the pirate”, “In the Everglades”, “Signs and Wonders “, and “The Rescue.”

Here is a the link to the announcement: https://www.writers-editors.com/Writers/Contests/Winners/winners.htm .

The reason for the award? “Strong observation, skilful use of description and environmental awareness mark these poems.”

In addition to the comments posted there, Judge Mary Harwell Sayler wrote JC a letter in which she noted the following: “I appreciate your introducing a sense of story… Poems often excel when they help readers to ‘be there’, which your poetry certainly does.”

She added, “This type of writing will surely help young people to care about nature, and, hopefully, become actively involved in positive ways throughout their lives.”

JC thanks Judge Harwell Sayler and the Writers-Editors Network for honouring her work with this prize .

“Now all I need is a publisher to come forward so that children and families can enjoy the whole suite of poems which follows a child from the North country on his first visit to the south in winter.”
