In honor of the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, Indiana Humanities opened a poetry competition. The winner took home $1000, tickets to the race, and the title of Official Track Poet! I was excited to hear that the poem I’d written, Brickyard Baptism, was chosen as part of the “Field of 33,” and will be part of a First Friday poetry event in May! The entire Field of 33 can be found here, including the winning poem, alpha by author. I am looking forward to reading them all, and to hearing many of them in a couple of weeks!
