Extra congratulations to Christopher Kennedy (my Tyrant 7 neighbor) and Maggie Nelson (author of the incredible Bluets) for winning a $25k NEA grant for poetry. Full list here.
This is fantastic news!
Norman Lock too! Wahoo!
Does anyone else find it interesting that what the money will actually be used for is listed in the translation grants (http://www.nea.gov/grants/recent/11grants/LitTranslation.html) but not for the poetry? Not saying, just saying.
Bluets blows…my mind!
Maybe I should post this anonymously…
