C.   A poem competition
Louisa [Greene], who had often published under the nom de plume “Lula,” came to be known as Lula Greene Richards. Continuing to write as she reared her family, she published in the Exponent, Relief Society Magazine, Children’s Friend, Era, and Young Woman’s Journal, and conducted a department of the Juvenile Instructor under the heading “Our Little Folks.” In 1904 she published a book of verse entitled Branches That Run Over the Wall. The following year, in honor of the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Joseph Smith, The Deseret Sunday School Union offered three prizes for the three best poems on the Prophet. Sister Richards won all three of the prizes! She also contributed to the hymnbook and to the Sunday School and Primary songbooks.
