News You Can Use

Filed under: Uncategorized — brooklinepoetry @ 3:22 pm

First, congratulations to our own dear Ann Killough, who has just won the L.L. Winship/PEN New England Award for her amazing first full-length collection, Beloved Idea.

I told Ann I think it will win the Pulitzer as well and she doesn’t believe me.  We’ll see…

I also want to give a free plug to Bert Stern and Tam Lin Neville’s Off the Grid Press.  What a wonderful venture–a place for poets over age 60 to publish their work.  The inagural title, Loyalty: New and Selected Poems, by Henry Braun, has just won a 2008 Maine Literary Award.

Bert and Tam are true believers.  They work tirelessly for poets.  We love them.

  1. Right on!
    How’d we get to mingle with the famously gifted?
    Hooray for prizes, and hip-hip-hooray for the deep topsoil that grows them!
