So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Haiku Winner in NCPC contest

I am so proud of my cousin, Pat Daharsh, who has won another First Place for haiku. This time it was the NC Poetry Society, Griffin-Farlow Haiku contest.


(The poems are identified by their first lines in square brackets.)

1st place: Patricia Daharsh, [“partial eclipse”]
2nd place: Crystal Simone Smith, [“plantation tour”]
3rd place: Chen-ou Liu, [“thinking of mom”]  

The following is the email Pat sent me.
North Carolina Poetry Society has announced winners in their annual Griffin-Farlow Haiku contest. My entry took First Place (publication in Pinesong and a cash prize),

Pat has been writing and winning haiku contests for some years now. Congrats, Pat.
Keep writing and winning.

Sorry I am so late posting this announcement. I thought it had come up back in the spring.
