In January, PoetryPlease announced the start of a contest of epic proportions. Those brave enough to join in the fierce competition were put through a rigorous five month writing and editing process. Many fighters joined, but many faltered and fell. In the end, only ten proud warriors emerged on the other side, submitting the fruits of their difficult labour. One three, however, could survive the final challenge--an in-depth scrutiny from a panel of power-house judges. These Three will now do down in PoetryPlease history as the leaders of this Epic Competition, and one, the strongest of the Three, will hold a special place in the history books...
