‘Epitaph’ wins fantasy poem contest for charity.

My poem, ‘Epitaph‘, won a fantasy poem contest – organised by the wonderful L. M. Stull, on behalf of the very talented author M.R. Mathias - being held to raise money for the charity SmileTrain.

I had two excellent reasons for entering this contest: the first was the charity aspect itself.  SmileTrain does one thing, but it does it well – its mission is focused on solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate.  It does this by providing free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries as well as providing free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals.

I think that their copy says it all: ‘changing the world one smile at a time’.

The second reason was a little more biased of me: the contest had to be a fantasy poem, based around dragons. 

They had me at hello :)

M.R. Mathias donated money himself to the charity but, on top of that, he is going to be publishing all the submission to the contest with 100% of the proceeds from that to be donated as well.

When the anthology is published I would urge you all to buy a copy because, by doing so, you will be helping a child to smile!
