200 New Mexico Poems Wins Award

The blog 200 New Mexico Poems: One Hundred Poems Celebrating the Past, One Hundred More for the Future, celebrates New Mexico’s centennial through poetry.  This month the blog won second place in the New Mexico Press Women’s 2013 Communication Contest Blogs-nonprofit category.   The Communications Contest Chair, Sherry Robinson, said that this project was one that really “touched her heart.”  Poems were submitted from  poets all over the state, including our own Bonnie Buckley Maldonado, who was the only contributor from Southwestern New Mexico.

Bonnie’s contribution begins:
