Sometimes things work out in favor of your arguments. The May/Jun 2011 issue of Poets & Writersmagazine ran an article on the demographics of literary contests, and I couldn't be more pleased to discover that I wasn't barking up the wrong tree in my last post.  Many who read this post may...

First there were poets. Then there were geeks. Now there are poet-geeks.
