The response to this year’s Poetry Contest was very enthusiastic with entries arriving from all across America (and from two foreign countries). We are very pleased with the number of entries, and we have begun the process of reviewing the poems. We look forward to announcing the results and to putting together the 2021 edition of Quiet Diamonds. We will post updates as the process moves forward. Thanks to all of you who submitted work.
