This year's jury included: Dan Beachy-Quick, Calvin Forbes and Leila Wilson, SAIC writing faculty; Kenneth Clarke, executive director of The Poetry Center of Chicago; and Manda Aufochs Gillespie, editor of F Newsmagazine and Ink.
The Ink jury awarded $150 to the first-place winner, $75 to the second-place, and $50 to both third-place winners. The honorable-mention and short-list winners are also published. Check out the winners here.
