SCARLET LEAF REVIEW
Hello, dear readers and dear authors!
All of you are extremely essential to the existence of this review and we would like to thank you, all of you, for helping us to keep it going.
Today, we would like to announce the poets and authors that won the competition for January – please, keep in mind, the period for the competition was between January 15 and February 15 only.
Initially, we thought of having only one winner for each category, however, it did not seem right. Not being aware that we could actually see how many readers a specific piece would have, we thought of taking into consideration the likes and comments, but as far as I can see 90% percent of the readers, if not more, do not leave comments or click on LIKE.
Therefore, this month we decided to present the winners as it follows:
POSTHUMOUS PRIZE – MIHAI EMINESCU – over 6,000 readings
NEIL SLEVIN – 927 READERS; 99 LIKES; 14 COMMENTS
ROBIN WYATT DUNN – 468 READERS; 80 LIKES; 32 COMMENTS
MALGORZATA SKALBANIA – 422 READERS; 44 LIKES; 5 COMMENTS
