from the St. Louis Poetry Center for my poem "In Case You Were Wondering," which appeared in the latest issue of Big Muddy! Thanks to editor Susan Swartwout for nominating me and to judge Tony Hoagland for choosing my work. I'm really honored.
The latest issue of Big Muddy is out, and just before my copies arrived, I got some really great news -- they're going to nominate my poem, "In Case You Were Wondering," for a Stanley Hanks Award from the St. Louis Poetry Center.
I've had all kinds of gooey regional love for Big Muddy since long before they ever published any of my work, and so naturally I'm honored, and I'll hope you'll help them out by picking up a copy or a subscription.
