Riley Huntington, with her poem "Spare Key".
Riley Huntington is a junior studying English Literature, Arabic, and Education at Binghamton University. Having been born and raised in Rhode Island, she associates most images in her poetry with the ocean and other nautical themes.
There were so many wonderful poems and it was a difficult decision for our readers. We'd like to thank everyone who submitted and encourage you to find a good home for your work.
We'd also like to congratulate Hana Yampolsky for her poem "Shadows," which earned the runner-up spot to the contest.
If you would like to see Riley read her poem, come to the Binghamton Poetry Project Reading this Friday night!
