We Have a Winner!

OMQ at Northern Lights Festival

On July 5th and 6th Open Minds Quarterly attended Sudbury’s annual folk festival, Northern Lights Festival Boréal. The festival welcomes a diversity of artisans and merchants – from near and far – who through their various efforts, promote the creative spirit in our community. With a space for our literature,  we were able to gain further exposure and meet community members, sharing the work we do, and listening to people’s stories.

We also held a magnetic poetry contest. We invited festival-goers to write a poem with magnetic letters. We then asked our website visitors to vote on the best poem, considering which poem they felt most connected to, which was the most well-written, or the most creative. The poll ended September 30, 2014, and we are pleased to announce and present the winner here. Congratulations to:

Haley Swanson

for her poem

“Where did I go?”

between balance and falling over

it’s a secret I try to accept

my thought isn’t my own

I wonder who they see

Haley will receive a free copy of this issue of OMQ. Thank you to all of our entrants and voters.
