And the Hessler Winners are... - This Joust In Vol 1 Issue 3

Greetings and Salutations everyone!

Azriel Johnson here with the results of the Hessler Street Fair Poetry Anthology Contest.

Before I reveal to those who have not seen the show, I just want to thank everyone again for showing up and sharing themselves. We had amazing work shared.  According to the judges the decisions were difficult to make and I'm certainly glad I was the host, rather than one of the judges.

If you want to watch all of the performances for yourself, here is the video:

There will be a second part to this newsletter probably this weekend.  It will go over changes being made to the Wayward Sword as well as the new competition Writing Knights is putting together. We will also include photos from the Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest reading.

Thank you for reading and we'll see you again this weekend!
