The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is very pleased to announce the winners of the 2004 Annual Aldrich Poetry Competition. They are Suzanne Frischkorn of Ansonia, Connecticut and Judith Valente of Chicago, Illinois. Our juror Mary Oliver, a Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winner, selected the manuscripts, which will be published in the fifth volume of The Aldrich Poetry Competition chapbook series.
We are currently organizing a reading and book signing at The Aldrich Contemporary with Ms. Frischkorn and Ms. Valente. Ms. Oliver has been invited to introduce the winning poets. A reception and book signing will follow the readings. Further details will be announced soon. Please check this page for the date and time of the reading.
SUZANNE! This is amazing, amazing news! I'm just so thrilled for you. I want more details! What MS? Where will the reading be? OH MY GOD! Great, great.
Congratulations! Sounds like Mary Oliver likes you as much as you like her. Nice when that happens.
Terrific news, Suzanne! Congratulations, dear.
CALLOOH CALLAY! HIP HIP HOORAY!
I believe my dear that the Universe just answered. I am so very, very happy for you.
That definitely beats a resounding "maybe". . .
Congratulations! I can't wait to see it!
Congratulations Suzanne. That's fantastic news. May your year be filled with many more such announcements!
Suzanne, I could not be more thrilled for you -- SPECTACULAR news! I'm grinning from ear to ear...very well done indeed.
Suzanne, this is awesome news! We knew it had to happen sooner or later (see, you are not *just* a chapbook poet).
Wow. Look at all this *Love*! You guys, are amazing. Thank you so much for celebrating with me. I am still kind-of stunned and have made a date with friends to celebrate by eating ice-cream sundaes (yummmmmmmm).
And I guess, you're right Steve, *lol* Now, I'm an award-winning chapbook poet. ;-)
