Yes, congratulations to all these good poets.

(Are we allowed to ask why this will be the final Nemerov contest? We can't help it, you know.)

Congratulations, everyone! Can't wait to read these. (Also ... I second Maryann's question.)

I had not heard before that this would be the last Nemerov contest. I too would like to hear why it will be ending.

Congrats to all, and a special note of compassion for my Powow buddy Jean Kreiling, who has been a runner-up about six times. I think it is improper and possibly immoral to discontinue the contest until Jean wins.
