I am pleased to announce that last Saturday, September 10, at the
Maryland Veterans’ Creative Arts Showcase, Maryland State
Fairgrounds, my essay, The Song in My Heart, took First
Place in Personal Essays. And my
poem Oldmanism received First Place in Non-rhyming
poetry! PTL! YAY! They will both be entered into the
nationwide competition to be held later this year. I read my
writings and my pandemic rhyming poem, 20112.
