April Poetry Madness: Championship!

The votes have been counted, and the final round is here! After some ballot-stuffing in the previous rounds (gotta love the enthusiasm!) we did a paper ballot in class in addition to the online vote. But I am happy to announce that both votes agreed on our finalists. Good luck to both books!

Voting Schedule

  • Final round of voting (Championship): Thurs. April 28th to Sat. April 29th
  • Winner announced on Sun. May 1st!

Place Your Votes! (Or, scroll down to see details about the finalists.)
