Poetic labor: still reading!

"Utopian Slumps" by Ed Ruscha. Pastels on paper, 1981.
They Called Her Styrene (Phaidon, 2000)

We're still reading your chapbooks, conferring.

We should be able to get through the rest of them this week, and expect to be able to make notifications after folks are back from the long Labor Day weekend.

Then we will announce what we've chosen, once the poets have confirmed.

We are very grateful that you have shared your work with us, and it's been very exciting reading these. We got more than we expected, which pleases us too!

More soon. Just wanted to give you an update.

Update to the update, September 6: We have finished reading, but are now re-reading the "finalists" and conferring one more time. Announcement next week.
