Nomina by Karen Volkman and The Boatloads by Dan Albergotti have both been honored with nominations this year. The Poets' Prize is awarded annually for the best book of verse published by an American in the previous calendar year. The $3000 annual prize is donated by a committee of about 20 American poets, who each nominate a book and who also serve as judges. The Nicholas Roerich Museum also contributes; the prize includes a trip to New York City, where the winner accepts the award and does a reading at the museum. The founders of the prize were Robert McDowell, Frederick Morgan, and BOA author Louis Simpson. The prize is administered by the Poetry Center at West Chester University. The winner of the Poets' Prize will be announced in spring. We have our collective fingers crossed, but we are proud of Karen Volkman and Dan Albergotti for this outstanding recognition.
