We have nominated four poets for the Pushcart Prize—for their poems in the 2013 Texas Poetry Calendar. Our nominees are Stan Crawford for “Dante in Texas,” C. Downs for “La Posada,” Monty Jones for “Winter,” and Robert Wynne for “Marlin, Texas.”
Francisco X. Alarcón chose Laurie Ann’s collection for the prize; he has this to say:
“I celebrate and praise the power of these poems that engage the great diversity of human reality with empathy, and do this also with tremendous imagination. These poems restore my faith in the power of poetry.”
A Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying is scheduled for a February 2013 release.
