Tor House Prize

Elliot Ruschowitz-Roberts from the Robinson Jeffers Tor House Foundation called me today to inform me that my poem, “The Notebook,” was selected by Eavan Boland for this year’s Tor House Poetry Prize. This poem, which concerns the Hungarian poet Miklós Radnóti, was originally written for Lise Goett’s Generative Writing Workshop, and along the way I received helpful suggestions to improve it from Wayne Lee and Steve Bunch. The prize includes $1,000 and a trip to do a reading in Carmel.
