HWA POETRY SHOWCASE VOL 6 TOC ANNOUNCEMENT AND COVER REVEAL

Good Afternoon, Poets and Poetry Lovers! Today in the Madhouse, I'm thrilled to share with you the TOC and cover reveal for the HWA Poetry Showcase Vol. 6. We had a ton of wonderfully dark and delicious submissions this year, which made the competition terribly intense, so I want to take a moment to thank all of those who submitted to the anthology; it was a true honor reading your work.

I also wanted to highlight our top three poets this year, whose work will be featured in a separate spotlight courtesy of the HWA Poetry Blog: Saba Syed Razvi, Michael Bailey
