Poetry Award

Summer 2022

I am humbled and thrilled to have my poem, "For Those of Us Forced to Flee," chosen for The Goodlife Review's Honeybee Poetry Prize. It means so much,
especially in this time when my home country of Ukraine is under siege and so many of us (physically and spiritually) seek hope and comfort in foreign lands. Thank you TGR and 2022 contest judge, Dr. Kwame Dawes, whose poetry I deeply admire.
