Marjorie Moorhead Wins Sheila-Na-Gig online’s Summer Contest

Sheila-Na-Gig online congratulates Marjorie Moorehead of New Hampshire on winning our Summer Poetry Contest. Her poems “Let This Day,” “Moon, Deer, Mountains, Stars,” and “Provincetown Night” will appear in our upcoming issue in June. Marjorie’s work addresses survival, adaptation, appreciation, and concern about the way we live with one another and the planet. She has two chapbooks, is included in many anthologies, and several literary journal sites. Happy to have found the poetry community, Marjorie meets with poetry and prompt writing groups as well as attending as many author readings as she can. Zoom has been a silver lining to the otherwise horrible pandemic year we’ve all had.

Other contest participants selected for publication include:  Wendy Maclean, Megan Merchant, Roberta Schultz, Dawn Terpstra, Pamela Wax, and Richard Westheimer

Our next regular submission and contest submission deadline is August. 1, 2021 for the Fall issue. Guidelines are at Currently, we are also hosting two $500 chapbook contests (one of these for poets under age 30), sponsored, in part, by Duotrope. The Deadline is July 1.
