Yesterday I found out that I am the student award winner for poetry in the Oregon State Campus Creature Census, an annual contest in which students submit poetry, prose, art, or photography of/about a local creature (plant or animal). My poem is about the inside-out flower, a lovely little white flower that grows in Douglas Fir forests.
The contest is part of the Spring Creek Project at Oregon State, an initiative run by the College of Liberal Arts. I won a small cash prize and the poem will be published on their website :). I’ll make sure to post it when it is released.
