Title: Winner - Saturday Evening Post limerick contest!
Post by: jeanne k on September 09, 2014, 01:25 PM
My limerick was chosen as the winner of the May/June limerick contest for the Saturday Evening Post!

Here's the link if anyone wants to see the inspiring picture and my winning entry.

This is always a fun contest for those of you who love to write poetry (and limericks in particular). There's a cash prize and I was actually published in their magazine along with on their website, which I didn't expect.

Very cool, Jeanne! Loved your limerick. I tried that contest years ago but was never chosen.

Thanks, eveyone!

(and, yes, they did misspell the name of my city. I guess they had "bolder" on their mind)
