We Are Pleased to Announce that

Steve Fellner

has won Marsh Hawk Press’s Third Annual Poetry Prize for his manuscript Blind Date with Cavafy. The Prize includes a $1,000.00 award and publication of the book.

Aaron Belz and Andrea Cohen
were awarded Honorable Mentions.

Additionally, forty Finalists will be congratulated via First Class mail.

The award is given annually for a book length collection of poems of 48-70 pages and publication of the book is the following spring.

The final judge was Denise Duhamel.

Denise writes: "Steve Fellner’s poetry is spunky, raw, immediate, and utterly compelling. Blind Date with Cavafy serves up hilarious pathos and devastating humor. Bleak, deadpan, enthusiastic, earnest: Steve Fellner’s book is all of these things, sometimes all of these things in one poem, sometimes all of these things in one line. His “Self-Portrait” at the center of the book pushes the conventions of the post-confessional, transgressive impulse. The poems in Blind Date with Cavafy shimmer with vulnerability, leaps, and dizzying riffs."

Rochelle Ratner sends this message, affecting some chaps of other Marsh Hawk poets:

Since December 2000, Tamafyhr Mountain Poetry has been a strong online presence. Editor Kenneth P. Gurney published 38 issues online (and 6 in print). In addition, he published 53 e-books and chapbooks (including 3 of my own). TMPoetry was taken offline in June 2006. In an attempt to fill a deep void, I've moved some of those chapbooks to this site: CLICK HERE FOR ACCESS:

Kenneth P. Gurney: Deliberately Watching

Sandy McIntosh: Obsessional
Simon Perchik: Words Between Earth and Water
