Who Says There Are No Fair Poetry Judges? Stern, Rankine, Reyes - The Best

That's, Barbara Jane Reyes, AKA William Blake, *winner* of this year's Laughlin award for second book of poetry from THEe Academy of American Poets, ahem, for Poeta en San Francisco. Too cool. That's a great book. Plus, she has the Silliman Seal of Approval, the SSA from another who knows how to pick 'em. Good show. All well-deserved. Read all about it at my favorite Chatelaine poet, Eileen Tabios, who also has a fine interview with her — and gets the scoop. Congratulations, Barbara! You "inspire the hell out of" us, too.

Ha! Teach you peeps to pay more attention to who's cookin' in my kitchen, or, out in the howl-la.

The recipients will be honored at the Academy’s awards ceremony on Thursday, November 3, 2005, at Lang Auditorium, New School, 55 West 13th Street, New York City, at 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

Oooo, good time to be NY. Maybe I'll see you there.
