Grain in the mail today and we're pleased to congratulate Richard for winning the Short Grain Poetry contest with "A Note Left on the Dresser." Judge Méira Cook says about the poem: "images accrue richly and wittily. . . . I love how well this poem ends, its sense of decorum, as well as the amiable and slightly abrasive rub of pragmatism against the density of images that precede it."
Richard is currently a graduate student here at UNB, and last term served as an editorial assistant of The Fiddlehead. He continues to read submissions for us as a volunteer.
Congratulations again to Richard and to the other winners!
