I deleted it the other day because I hadn't heard back from the magazine that it was "official," but now that they've confirmed my enrollment and all that jazz...I found out this week that I'm the third place winner of the Atlantic Monthly Student Writing Competition. The letter said the editors will consider the prize winning manuscripts for publication, which is a pipe dream I'm trying to not allow myself to think about. From an extensive amount of internet stalking, I discovered that last year they only published the winner while two years ago they published the top three. Here's hoping for the latter. But either way, I'm honored to receive the award and thrilled to know someone at the Atlantic took a second-glance at a poem I wrote.
