I’ve never almost almost won anything before

In Art, Confessional, Prose on January 20, 2010 at 7:55 am

Rose Metal Press announced the winner (the excellent Mary Hamilton, for We Know What We Are) and placers of its Fourth Annual Short Short Chapbook Contest this morning, and I was so blown away (LITERALLY!) to discover that I am part of a finalist, for my collection, The Sun Has Packed So Many Suitcases. Other partials are Thisbe Nissen, Tiff Holland, Roxanne Gay, Spencer Dew, and James Tadd Adcox.  Entire finalists are the very fine Mary Miller, Tim Jones-Yelvington, John Jodzio, and Elizabeth Colen. Dinty W. Moore was the judge this year, and judging by the company I’m keeping, this can’t have been easy. Thanks, Rose Metal, for a quality contest and great opportunity.
