Congratulations to all the winners of this year’s Elgin award, especially Marge Simon, who I had the pleasure of interviewing earlier this year as well as reviewing her second place winner, Small Spirits: Dark Dolls.
The largest pool of poetry books and chapbooks to date—51 books were nominated! I am thrilled to have been nominated with my first poetry chapbook, In Favor of Pain, and was told it made it to 9th place.
