“Survivor” Poem Wins Emrys Award

My poem, “Survivor,” was just published in Volume 33 2016 of Emrys Journal published by the Emrys Foundation in Greenville, SC.  It received the Nancy Dew Taylor Award given to one writer “for excellence in the art of poetry.”  The journal is beautiful and I am so pleased this poem, about a friend of mine who lost her mother as a child, received recognition.  The poem is, of course, also about me since I lost my father in a similar way.  Losing a parent as a child always leaves a mark.
