Currently, she is living just outside of Boston finishing my memoir and freelance writing.

Allie's winning poem is titled ‘Outsider’. Make sure to check out her poetry which will be posted on the blog. Our 2nd and 3rd place winners are as follows:

  • 2nd place, Chloé McMurray with her poem, Love Songafter Sexton

Thank you to all who entered poetry into the contest. There were a number of poems that stood out and many of them will be posted on the Sad Girls Club blog in the coming weeks. We would like to thank everyone who submitted poetry into the contest. We look forward to running more contests in the future and seeing more of your work. There was a fantastic selection of poems to choose from, making the task of judging this contest a challenging task!
