AWW Alumni and instructor nominated for Pushcart Prize!

From AWW alumni (2009) and instructor (Saturday Seminar, 2010) Julie Moore: "Hi, Sharon. I thought you'd like to know that a poem of mine workshopped in the 2009 AWW was just nominated for a Pushcart Prize. The poem is "The Problem with School," which appeared in the summer issue of Verse Wisconsin here: My workshop leader that year was Ed Davis, and I read that poem at AWW's closing program where I received many favorable responses. Three cheers (again) for AWW!"

Congratulations, Julie, and thank you for sharing your good news!
