Please vote in Bangor Poetry Competition

Christine Valters Paintner is excited to share that she is shortlisted for the Bangor Poetry Competition and has a favor to ask of you!

Will you please go to this link and vote for my poem (#15 Field Notes on Being an Orphan.) It is a poem quite close to her heart and many of you will recognize pieces of her journey in it.

You have to vote for your first, second, and third choices for your vote to count and there are several wonderful poems there. Pour some tea and give yourself a few minutes to read through the finalists.

A deep bow of gratitude to you for your support and especially if you make the time to vote.

Voting ends on December 12th.
