Transit of Venus


Back in January I read my poem, “Transit of Venus,” as part of Poetry Scope, an event hosted by the NC Museum of Natural Sciences that featured  science-related poems. I submitted this poem to the Carolina Woman Magazine‘s Mighty Pens writing contest and won second place! The poem is featured in the magazine’s June issue:

  1. Congratulations on the publication. Terrific poem.

  2. Congratulations, Pamela. The poem is great, much deserving of first place, but second is OK. The second place award is beautiful.
