It was a difficult decision for the jury. But we had a lot of fun and want to thank all poets for their wonderful poems.
Thank you, Raymond Walker and Sherry Perkins for their jury work and offering one of their books to the winners. I appreciate your help and support!
Now, please permit me a word on my own account:
The Halloween-Poem Contest has brought us all a lot of work and fun and many wonderful Halloween poems, showing how much talent there is around.
However, it also showed us, with this year having the lowest number of participants, that our poets have shown all their skills within the Halloween theme.
After five years of organizing the Annual Halloween-Poem Contest and hosting it on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest,’ I think it is time for something new.
It was five years of fun and I wanted to thank everyone, all participants, and in particular all jury members from the first to the last contest, for making this a wonderful experience for me! Thanks so much for all your work, your help, your support – and the wonderful books you offered as prizes in the five years! You all are amazing, not only as authors but also as wonderful friends!
Good Bye Halloween-Poem Contest. It was great.
