Jody's winning poem!
It's probably no surprise that most booksellers are also writers themselves. We're very proud of our very own Jody Hetherington, who just was named a winner in the 2009 Maine Literary Awards, sponsored by the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. You can see her superb poem, winner in the Individual Awards for Unpublished Work Poetry category, below. Jody also received an Honorable Mention for her fiction, "House of Words", in the Individual Awards for Unpublished Work Fiction category. Go Jody! It's only a matter of time before we're hosting her as a featured reader and published author at RiverRun!
First, find a boat. It helps
to have a dream of water still
lapping in your ears and the salt
of regret in your eyes. Stay
within thought of the ocean, and listen.
