This week I’m hub editor at the Tuesday Poem site, and I’ve posted the winning poem from the 2013 Takahē Poetry Competition — ‘Uncoupling’ by Northland poet Jac Jenkins. It’s a poem dedicated to Christine de Pizan and it contains compact beauty and mystery.
You can read the poem and the judge’s comments for selecting this poem as the winning entry in the 2013 competition here.
Thank you, Jac, for sharing this poem with the Tuesday Poem collective!
Also, for interested people, don’t overlook the Sarah Broom Poetry Prize competition, with a deadline of March 14. Sarah was friend to many Tuesday Poets. I did not know her personally, but her poetry sings. And this is a wonderful way for poetry to be celebrated. Details here.
Tuesday Poem is a collective of poets who share poetry on a weekly basis across borders and time zones. At the hub, besides the poem this week by poet Jac Jenkins, you will also find poems by the various TP collective members — look down the left-hand sidebar and click on each one to see their weekly contributions.
