Poems of Solidarity for Haiti
Winning Poems Chosen
by Alice Lovelace, Armed with Art
and In Motion Magazine
We thank everyone who submitted their poems and writings as part of the 100 Poems of Solidarity for Haiti contest.
We didn't get 100 poems, but are grateful for those we did receive.
Because we had four judges, we had to go through several rounds of reading and voting to come up with our finalists. This was very hard work and took longer than we anticipated. Why? Because so many great poems were submitted.
Here are the winner and finalists:
The four judges who made the final selections:
Theresa Davis: is a member of The Word Diversity Collective/Art Amok and represented Atlanta as a member of the 2006 - 2010 Art Amok Slam Team. In 2009 Theresa was ranked 8th female poet in the world as a finalist in the Women of the World Poetry Slam. Theresa is a member of Armed With Art.
