Good News

Friday Night I placed as the third winner in the Beal Poetry Competition in Massachusetts for a poem called Hye Holiday… and sorry, I can’t yet print it here as it hasn’t yet been published.



the three winners


Today I also placed in the Hammond House International Literary Awards, 2018, for poetry.  They’ll be sending more information and giving general announcements next week.  This poem is also about Armenian culture, like the Hye Holiday poem. In the language, we call ourselves Hye, from Hyastan.  My family lived outside of Kharpet, in Eastern Turkey, before the genocide, and the survivors that were healthy enough moved to the United States.
