Wright and Taylor win the Weinstein Poetry Prize for 2009

Charles Wright and Eleanor Ross Taylor have won the Carole Weinstein Poetry Prize ($10,000 each) for 2009.

School of Quietude, another victory! Poetry will stroll its way into the woods, check for owls and deer, dead mules, and back porch meditations. To be somewhat fair (ha!) I like her stuff far better than his, but not being from Virginia originally or caring much for 'nature', I can't say this makes much difference to me.

It's really sad that you've bought into Ron Silliman's silly, reductive labels.

sadder still that you can't declare who you really are...
