Hello All,

My name is Matt Gallant, a poet/teacher/publisher from DC, formerly NH. I competed at the 2010 and 2011 National Poetry slams, I've been a high school English teacher for eleven years and I run Sargent Press (www.sargent-press.com). About a year ago, I thought it would be really cool to gather all the past winners and runners-up to Head-to-Head Haiku Slams at NPS / IWPS / WOWPS into one place ("Red Reads First: an Anthology of Head-to-Head Haiku, 1995 -- 2013).

I immediately contacted Taz, for both his blessing and aid in finding out who's won since the start (mostly Jerri Hardesty and Ed Mabrey, it seems...both of whose submissions I already have) and then contacting them via various means. However, I'm still missing a few names. Any help would be appreciated...


  1) 1995 NPS champ was Matt Cibula, but who was runner-up?
  2) 1996 NPS champ was Taz, but who was runner-up?
  3) 2003 NPS champ was Lucy Anderton, but who was runner-up?
  4) 2004 NPS champ was Ed Mabrey, but who was runner-up?
  5) 2005 IWPS champ was Jerri Hardesty, but who was runner-up?
  6) 2008 NPS champ was Michael O'Hara, but who was runner-up?
  7) 2008 IWPS champ was Nicole Homer, but who was runner-up?
  8) 2008 WOWPS champ was Jerri Hardesty, but who was runner-up?
  9) 2011 NPS champ was Nicole Homer, but who was runner-up?


And then I don't have the champ or runner-up for:
2011 WOWPS
2012 NPS
2012 IWPS
2012 WOWPS


I'll probably include 2013 NPS, but I don't know about 2013 IWPS or WOWPS. This collection has already been a year in the making, but submissions either flood or trickle in and unfortunately, I'll have to cut it off somewhere. I'm looking for a nice round number of poets. Right now it's at 28. Assuming there's more repeats in who I'm missing, I'd like to stop at 35 or 40. We'll see what happens.


Thanks in advance, PSi!


Matthew P. Gallant

Some other people who have pretty long memories on this stuff are Big Poppa E, Billy Tuggle, Theresa Davis & Jerri, if you haven't asked them already ;)

I don't see 2009 or 2010 in your list above. Wasn't Patrick S. the winner or runner-up one of those years?

Simone,

I've got him already, no worries, and his submission. 

I didn't bother to post questions about any of the years / names I already have.
