A poem of mine, entitled “Point of Reference”, has won a Newfoundland and Labrador Arts and Letters Award this year. The ceremony was held last night at The Rooms in St. John’s and, though I was not able to attend, was no doubt a well organized, presented, and catered affair as it always is. This is the third time in as many years I’ve been lucky enough to receive such an award and I’m honoured that the judges have found value in the poem I submitted.
I’ll attach the poem below for those interested in reading it. You can see other winning entries on the official A&L Awards website when they are posted either later today or early tomorrow.
