Congratulations to Lynne Francis (Hatfield) and Beth Filson (Easthampton)! Lynne and Beth are Amherst Live‘s first Poetry Prize finalists. One poem by each finalist will be recited on stage at the January 25, 2014 show. The audience will decide the winner.
Beth and Lynne’s poems were selected with great difficulty. The talent and passion on display among the many submissions we received was staggering. Among these, we’d like to acknowledge five runners-up:
Emily Bloch (Shutesbury)
Dan Chelotti (Easthampton)
Carol Connare (Amherst)
Daniel Hales (Greenfield)
Jonathan Tucker (Florence)
Submissions for the Winter 2014 Amherst Live poetry prize are now closed. Please check back or sign up for our emails to be alerted to the next submission period.
