Billy Collins Contest Winner!

Yes, figs, a second contest winner is being announced today and this time it’s for the Poetry Contest with Billy Collins!

The winning entry, chosen by the magnificent Billy Collins himself, is Whiplashing in Auditory Canals by Sean Reichard.

Of Sean’s entry, Billy Collins had this to say: “Whiplashing in Auditory Canals stood out enough to be a winner. I saw a lot of energetic, imaginative freedom on display, and, surprisingly, it was one of the few poems that responded to the exercise’s not-so-veiled invitation to make up some kooky band names.”

As winner, you will be receiving a signed copy of Billy’s most recent collection of poetry, Horoscopes for the Dead. Congratulations, Sean!

  2. Sean, this is wonderful news. Thank you, thank you for sharing. This poem is so true to your beatnik, sometimes Bukowski-esque voice; I’m thrilled that Billy Collins got the chance to read it. And I’m so just happy that you’re continuing to write! Good stuff. Keep it coming.
