I received a nice letter from Indiana Review yesterday informing me that one of my poems was picked as a second runner-up in the 2009 Indiana Review Poetry Prize by Pulitzer-Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey. It appears the other runner-up poem is by the same author that won the prize — Tom Christopher. Congratulations to Tom and the finalists. His poem is guaranteed publication in a forthcoming issue of Indiana Review. As a subscriber, I look forward to reading the poem.
