• WINNER •
of the 2013 Nantucket Directory Poetry Contest



Leah took first place in the 2013 Nantucket Directory Poetry Contest with her poem, “The Gray Lady of the harbor.” The contest centered around poems about Nantucket, and Leah—a former Massachusetts resident—touched on the fogginess of the island (nicknamed The Gray Lady for the constant fog) and the lighthouses on Points Sankaty and Brant that cut through the fog. The poem was granted a $250 honorarium, and it will grace the cover of the 2013-2014 Nantucket Directory for a full year, both in print and on the directory homepage. The poem will also be featured in the Nantucket newspaper, Yesterday’s Island.
