Karen Paul Holmes has had many recent successes with her poetry. "Willow
Manor" was accepted for the anthology When Last on the Mountain: Essays, Stories and
Poems from Writers Over 50 (Holy Cow! Press, Duluth, MN), "The Economy of Japanese
Flower Arranging" won second place (cash prize) in the Atlanta Writer's Club Spring
Writing Contest, and "Drawn into Circles" was a finalist in the Atlanta Review's
2009 International Contest (meaning it made the top 5% of "thousands of entries from
dozens of countries" according to the journal's editor).
