Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Allen Ginsberg Honorable Mention

My poem, “Nun Gowns,” was awarded an Honorable Mention in this year’s Allen Ginsberg Poetry competition sponsored by the Poetry Center at Passaic County Community College! The poem will appear in the 2020 edition of the Paterson Literary Review. This is a long-standing competition and I have long admired the writing and poetry advocacy efforts of executive director Maria Mazziotti Gillan. I am so thrilled to have a poem of mine recognized here!
