Bruce Snider Wins 2011 Lena-Miles Wever Todd Poetry Prize

by Corey Van Landingham, Co-Poetry Editor

Congratulations to Issue 22.1 contributor Bruce Snider, whose book Paradise, Indiana was chosen by Alice Friman as the winner of the 2011 Lena-Miles Weyer Todd Poetry Prize! The book will be published by Pleiades Press in April of 2012 and distributed by LSU Press.

After reading his poem of the same title in Sycamore Review, we weren’t surprised that he has received such an impressive accolade. We look forward to continuing to read more of his work, and to continue to cheer him on.
