Robert Mezey has won one of the most prestigious poetry prizes going, the Poet's Prize, which is awarded by a group of thirty distinguished poets who contribute their own funds toward the $3,000 prize. Well-deserved!!!!

My goodness!

Thirty poets who can stump up a thousand dollars each without a Mepistophilean pact...

Exclusive company indeed. Now that is an honour!

Congratulations, Robert.

No, no, Nigel! It's a hundred dollars each! Do you want to send all those poets to the poorhouse?

Congratulations to Robert for being on the receiving end of this poets' act of generosity and esteem. It reminds me of the old idea of writers' chipping in to create a "fund" so TS Eliot could quit his bank job...but a simple award is so much better!
