So I normally don't post unflattering photos of myself, but when this photo was taken a week ago, I had no idea that the gentleman next to me, Eduardo Corral, would be chosen as the winner of the Yale Younger Poets prize.
But he was.
I think we look like brother and sister in this photo due to our glasses... but obviously, he is the photogenic one of the family. And the big prize winner.
So if you haven't wished him congrats, do so. This is not just big. It's huge.
Many many congrats, Eduardo! I am SO SO SO glad you won!
