I'm especially pleased for Cecilia, because her poetry never fails to move me. I find myself going back to it again and again. If you haven't read Carpathia or Late, get thee to a bookstore post-haste. Cecilia is one of the most generous poets I know and her critique of my work has made me a better poet.
My hope for all three of these fine poets is that the $25,000 fellowship gives the time to create more beautiful work. What a fantastic holiday gift!
