THE ANNUAL 2017 WINNER ǀ Sentimentalism by Zoe Andrews

Her Heart Poetry is pleased to present the winning entry for our inaugural International micropoetry competition, THE ANNUAL. This work traverses the minutiae of a relationship that leave a lasting taste in the mouth, long after love has gone. A delicate, clever and new perspective on a timeless theme. Congratulations Zoe! Sentimentalism Save the cork, and capture the midnight moonlight in the empty bottle. Frame the photo, the one with his arm around you and stars in your eyes. Make a catalogue of everything he’s left at your place: One glove, half a carton of leftover fried rice, and a toothbrush. Dry the flower petals between the pages of old books. Keep the ticket stubs, the melted ends of candles, the restaurant matchboxes. Create a map from his freckles and laugh lines, his scars and the curvature of his spine. Be its faithful cartographer.

THE ANNUAL ǀ Selected Works for the Forthcoming Anthology

Judged by J. M. Storm J. M. Storm ǀ @jmstormquotes  and Her Heart Poetry are pleased to confirm the final selections for the forthcoming anthology, THE ANNUAL ǀ 2017. The standard of work was very high and the final selections range across a wide variety of topics. Some have taken on a traditional form, while others move around the page, mix long lines with short and insist that readers pay attention to their rhymes and silences. All embrace the contemporary notion of brevity and clarity, and all present a modern voice. A voice for the now. We are sure that this anthology, which will be available in October 2017, will be a welcome addition to any poetry lover’s home. The winning entry, Sentimentalism by Zoe Andrews, can be viewed in full here.
