JUDGE ADRIAN C. LOUIS SELECTS 2012 WINNER OF THE LIAM RECTOR FIRST BOOK PRIZE FOR POETRY
First, thanks to all for their patience in the delay of this announcement. We had a death in the prize family, and as such, we appreciate your kindness in waiting.
We’re pleased to announce the 2012 winner of The Liam Rector First Book Prize for Poetry:
Porthole by Greg McBride
of Silver Spring, MD
The winner will receive an honorarium of $1000, and publication by Briery Creek Press, to be released in Spring 2012.
Of Mr. McBride’s winning collection, our final judge, Adrian Louis writes:
“McBride’s is a mature voice, historical, compassionate, tender and visionary…”
All entrants will receive a copy of the winning book after its release in Spring 2012. Reading for the Liam Rector Prize for 2013 begins February 1, 2012.
Contributor copies of Dos Passos Review 8.1 have been sent out. Thanks for your contributions.
Prize notification for the Liam Rector First Book Prize for Poetry has been moved a little into July. We have sent off the poetry manuscripts to our judge. We’ll notify the winner as soon as we get word from our illustrious final judge, as well as announcing it here and on our Facebook page.
Dos Passos Review 8.1 goes to the printers tomorrow, and the contributor’s copies will be sent out shortly after Independence Day.
We are currently galley reading the newest Dos Passos Review. We had a death in the Briery Creek family, so it’s taking us a little longer than usual. It should be printed with contributor’s copies sent out in the next few weeks.
Thank you for your patience.
We have extended the deadline for the Sixth Annual Liam Rector First Book Prize for Poetry manuscripts to May 31st, 2011.
