Poetry Contest!!!

Ruminate Magazine is an outstanding Christian literary and arts journal that is published quarterly. Judith and I have met several of the editors at Judith's Ad Lib Christian Arts retreats, and their journal is chock full of top-notch writing -- truly excellent stuff.

I received an e-mail today stating that they just extended their Janet B. McCabe Poetry Prize deadline to May 31, 2009. The prize will be judged by the award-winning poet Scott Cairns.

The entry fee is $15, and $500 will be awarded to the winner and publication in Ruminate's Fall 2009 issue of the winning and runner-up poems. Up to three poems per entry may be submitted, and multiple entries are also allowed.

Plus all entries will be considered for general publication in the Fall 2009 issue, and each entrant will also receive a Fall 2009 issue of Ruminate.

I'm going to enter a few poems. How about YOU?
