Mid-November Shout-Outs

The University of Virginia Press has released their annual Best New Poets 2009, showcasing 50 of the best poems from the new heavies of the year past. Check it out. You’ll find contributor Pilar Gomez-Ibanez and her IR 2008 Poetry Contest Winning Piece “Losing Bedrock Farm," as well as a poem by Indiana MFA’s very own Keith Leonard.

In other shout out news, IR would like to congratulate Jericho Brown on snagging a 2009 Whiting Writers' Award, which honors talented writers with $50,000 (Ballin’!). Jericho’s “All that Crawls Beneath Me” appears in IR’s special Funk Feature and a review of his debut collection “Please” will appear in our forthcoming issue.
