memorial for a brilliant woman

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

George Garrett is the 2006 winner of the Weinstein Poetry Prize for Central Virginia.

It's a $10,000 annual prize BTW. He's a wonderful choice. A great man.

I would be too, someday.

I do a lot for poetry in Central Virginia, but there's that academic bias and the lack of a published book. I suspect there is an unwritten list somewhere of all the people that have to get it before anyone 'out of the club' can be considered. I should live so long.

I've got issues, don't I?
