Great News for Two Great Poets!

I want to start March off on a right note by celebrating some great news for two poets. 

Amanda Auchter has just announced that her second manuscript, The Wishing Tomb, has won the 2012 Perugia Press Book for Women.  Not only do I love Amanda’s work (If you haven’t read The Glass Crib, which was published last year, you should!), but I also love Perugia Press!

My friend and fellow Pennsylvania poet, Gabriel Welsch, has a new book coming out this year.  However, Steel Toe Books has just announced that Gabe’s third full length collection of poetry, Four Horsepersons of a Disappointing Apocalypse, was selected during last year’s open submission period.  Great title! And so fitting — let’s hope that the world does not end before the book is published!
