Honored to announce that my poem, "I wonder why they never taught us about Sylvia Mendez" was a Top 60 finalist among over 400 entries. Though it was not selected, it still feels amazing to have a poem come so close! I'll be waiting to see the winning poem announced, which will no doubt be electrifying. You can check out the contest, as well as Philadelphia Stories, here.
