The 2007 Print Annual for Amaze: The Cinquain Journal is now available at Lulu:


It contains all of the poems from the 2007 online quarterly issues.

Also, I'm pleased to announce the winners of the second Adelaide Award. The Adelaide Award was created last year to highlight examples of cinquain excellence after an idea Brian Strand posted to this list.

This year's Adelaide Award was again judged by Denis Garrison, the former editor and co- founder of Amaze: The Cinquain Journal. All cinquains published in Amaze during 2007 were eligible.

The winners are:

First Place - The Adelaide: 'Sea Sounds' by Carol Raisfeld ($15, certificate, copy of print journal)

Second Place - 'Lipstick' by Lucille Gang Shulklapper ($10, certificate)

Third Place - 'Apprenticed' by Ross Polvnick ($5, certificate)

The other winners all receive certificates:

Fourth Place: 'At the Boarding Gate' by Bob Lucky
Fifth Place: 'Railroad out of bondage' by Rich Magahiz

Honorable Mentions:

'Galactic Lullaby' by Michael L. Evans
'Long Ago' by Terra Martin
'Shipwrecked' by John Daleiden'

Honorable Mentions – Variant Forms

Mirror Cinquain: 'Song of the Muse' by Michael L Evans
Crown Cinquain: 'Poet Without Border' by Hortensia Anderson
Cinquain Butterfly: 'Whispers at the Window' by Naia

Denis has written a very nice write-up about these poems, which is included in the 2007 Print Annual. It can also be read here:


The rest of Issue #15 should be online soon. We needed to move the Amaze webpages to a new webhost.

Warm regards,
