"This year's BrainStorm Poetry Contest," say the editors, "is dedicated in greatest appreciation and fondest memory to Ann Morrison, who volunteered her time and passion for many years as one of our contest judges before passing away on Friday, May 25, 2012. Thank you, Ann. Your presence and insight will be very missed."
