The Shadow Award

17 Jun

Well, this is new.

The Molotov Cocktail has been around for well over six years now, and this is the very first time that poetry is gracing our pages. We were ecstatic to see such a strong turnout, and the quality was out of this world. Our primary poetry judge, Mary Lenoir Bond, had her work cut out for her.

Don’t forget to check out our results page to take a peek at the coveted close-but-no-cigar shout-outs. Our next quarterly contest, Flash Icon, is in full swing and requires that you include an iconic person, place or thing. Get weird with it!

But enough about me…
