The Victoria Arts Council and Monday Magazine are proud to present the winning entries for our first annual Poetry Contest.
Over 100 submissions in five categories were received, and from that pool, six poets’ works below were selected. The following poems offer personal takes on universal themes, making us chuckle, wonder and cringe in the process. Enjoy!
– Kegan McFadden, executive director VAC
Some of the winners were on hand to read their works aloud at a special launch party held Jan. 10 at the Victoria Arts Council gallery, located at 1800 Store St.
