Paumanok Poetry Award

I’m one of the runnersup for the Paumanok Poetry Award, which is more than just a consolation prize: I’ll be giving a reading next year down on Long Island, at SUNY Farmingdale, which will be cool because I don’t get down that way very often & the award pays enough that I’ll be able to stay in NYC for a couple of days & go to museums & bookstores.

  1. That’s great news. I loved the poem you published in The Sun too. Sabbatical arrives just as you hit a new stride marked by wide vision and that urgency that comes with good storytelling. You seem to be enjoying the work too.
