National Space Society Winners Official Announcement; “First Sundays” Prose Includes Silent Scream

Later this morning the official announcement came, so to see all the winners in all divisions one can now press the link here.  According to the accompanying email, this year’s National Space Society of North Texas/Fort Worth Haiku Society poetry contest “received over 120 entries; many were outstanding.  Thank you all who entered.  We are preparing an anthology to include most of the entries.  I will be sending you an email soon about participating in the anthology.”  More news on the anthology will appear here, as it becomes known.  Also the anthology of last year’s MARS:  THE NEXT FRONTIER competition has yet to be released, to the best of my knowledge, so as more is found out look for news of it here as well.

And I might mention also, in terms of friends in the Science fiction Poetry Association, the Horror Writers Association, and others, that there are some names in addition to mine on the winners’ list that may be familiar.

Then leaving space and returning to home, this afternoon I participated in the Bloomington Writers Guild’s “First Sundays” mostly-prose series (cf. August 5, March 3 2013, et al.) at local bookstore Boxcar Books with featured readers Rebekah Riebsomer Spivey, Ashley Ray Pérez, and Antonia Matthew.  Then five of us non-headliners read after the break for three or four minutes each, my offering being an as yet unpublished first-person psychological piece called “Silent Scream.”  Good presentations, good coffee and cookies, a mellow winding-down afternoon to prepare for an upcoming week on The Road to Halloween.
