Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Prize 2006

I start off my blogcarnation with good news. My good news (lol).


Last week came with the announcement that I have been awarded a (2006) Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Prize.


The prize awards between $1,000 and $25,000 annually for the finest lyric poems celebrating the spirit of life, written by poets under 40.


I won a $1,000 prize for my poem VISITING THE YELLOW RIVER.

I consider this my first Poetry Prize*


*Last year, my poem LIFE SCIENCES, earned me a "Noteworthy Poet" selection in the 2006 Castello di Duino poetry competition (plus publication in the competition anthology, translation of my poem to Italian, and a recording of the poem on audio CD); but the Dorothy Rosenberg is my first "win", if you get my drift...
