Rhina has just--the same week!--won the Word Press Prize for another book. The gods are alive and well, it seems!

Deborah, this is wondrous good news! Thanks for announcing it. And Rhina, let me be the first here to say a hearty, hearty congratulations, ma'am. I understand that Dr. Walzer has impeccable taste in authors

Allow me to make one small correction: the contest in question is David Robert Books, not Word Press (DRB is an imprint of Word Press). But, the news is otherwise correct...we are very fortunate to have Rhina's wonderful manuscript.

Rhina:
You're accumulating accolades faster than I can keep track, but don't let that slow you down. If in my tallying I'm a little behind, well, that's what my brother always used to tell me I was anyway.
Congratulations. This is good for you and it's good for poetry.
Richard

It is wonderful that Rhina has two more books forthcoming. Lucky us. Lucky little houses that honor themselves by publishing her. BUT, it's a sad comment on the state of affairs that a poet of Espaillat's stature has to enter and win book contests. Whatever happened to the good days when a Tony Hecht was taken on by Knopf, a Wilbur by HBJ, for life? I had hoped to have such a relationship with Story Line, but it was not to be. Nonetheless, three loud cheers for Kevin Walzer and his brave enterprise!

Rhina

Congratulations on the DRB Prize! We need to weave you a wreath of laurel and place it on your head. It is an affirmation and a delight every time a prize goes to the deserving Rhina Espaillat.

Tim, most important point re the publishers. Your news re Story Line is disappointing, but your name as a poet is on an upward arc. Good to see you back again!
