Happy Dance! Foreword Book of the Year Prize for Poetry!
I just learned my book Letters From the Emily Dickinson Room just won Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year Prize in Poetry (and the Gold prize with Rebecca Foust's book, God, Seed).
I'll post more about it next week, but wanted to share it here with you. Thank you for all being so supportive about this book. Truly, when it came out, I was so worried how it would be received. I am truly honored to have been chosen for this.
