The 2011 Crashaw Prize

I’m delighted to spread the news that Luke Heeley and Kaddy Benyon have won this year’s Crashaw Prize from Salt Publishing. I’m thrilled for them, am excited to see their books, and am honored to have spent any amount of time on the shortlist at all — especially next to so many other wonderful poets. Congratulations to both Luke and Kaddy, and may everyone look forward to two fine collections shortly to grace our shelves.
