During the month after the Clemson Literary Festival/SCR 40th-anniversary celebration, the winners of our poetry contest were picked by distinguished poet Laurence Lieberman. The winners are as follows: First Prize, George Drew for "Blessed"; Second Prize, David Hopes for "In a Summer of Almost Too Much Light"; Third Prize, Hastings Hensel for "Duck Blind." The Honorable Mention status was conferred to three poets: Ellaraine Lockie for "Autopsy Means to See with One’s Own Eyes," Susan Rich for "Hunger Is the Best Cook," and Thomas Cofield for "Igneous Carolinas: A Day in Five Perspectives." Look for these poems in the opening section of SCR 41.1 (Fall 2008), accompanied by observations by Lieberman as well as anecdotes and prognostications by Clemson’s first SCR managing editor (Bill Koon) and its present one, yours truly. —WKC
