I really can’t believe this. I mean, just…yeah. so, my poetry collection, The Oregon Trail is the Oregon Trail, has been shortlisted for the 2012 Believer Poetry Award. It’s an incredible honor. The other nominees are Samuel Amadon, James Arthur, Emily Pettit, & Sun Yung Shin. I’m beyond humbled to be included in such company. & I’d like to thank everyone who has purchased a copy of The Oregon Trail, helping keep it alive & moving for over a year now. It means mountaintops.
