Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize

I apologize for posting out of turn but I just learned of the following news...

Each year, Bear Star Press awards the Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize ($1,000 and publication) to a writer living west of the central time zone. The contest also serves as the press's best pool for finding new voices. I just got word that Manuel Paul López of El Centro, California is this year's winner for his collection, The Death of a Mexican & Other Poems. I remember reading his poetry a few years ago in ZYZZYVA and being quite moved by his talent. Bear Star Press will publish the winning collection this year. More news later.
