Not About The Buildings
Thirty-seven spellers. Fourteen rounds. The competition was fierce at AS220 on June 2nd, but eventually Maureen Reddy won the competition with the word caesura, a literary term for a break in the middle of a line of verse.
In addition to fame, honor, and glory, Maureen won prizes from Tiny Showcase, Grandburo, if n books, and Blue State Coffee.
