Winners of the Everyday Inspiration Poetry Contest

We’re writers and as writers we seek out inspiration in so many unusual places. We can see beauty in spilled milk and find the perfect line hiding in a math textbook.

Inspired by William Carlos Williams’ simple and beautiful poem, “This Is Just To Say,” we challenged you to write a poem about the everyday circumstances of life. Figment editors read all the entries (more than 200!) and now we’re pleased to announce the winners:

Check out the winning entries below and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!





Well done, everyone! Your stories will be featured on the Figment Homepage on Tuesday, October 8.
