Along with a pithy rejection slip from The Formalist, I also received notice that OUR Deborah Warren is the Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award, 2001 winner (final judge, X. J. Kennedy). Congrats, Deborah, and to OUR FINALISTS, Thomas Carper, Rhina Espaillat, Len Krisak, and Alicia Stallings. Congrats to all. Erato Rules!
