Congratulations to Danielle Ryle!

... whose poems "Pastoral, Possibly" and "It's Always a Soliloquy" won
Iron Horse Literary Review's "Discovered Voices" competition!

The annual prize, which was won in nonfiction last year by our very own Emily Watson, honors writers from AWP-affiliated creative writing programs. In other words: this is a big deal. And... we've won two years in a row. So, yea for us.

But, of course, mostly yea for Danielle. Her poems will appear in the February 2012 issue and she'll receive $150 and two copies. See, mom and dad, there is money in poetry.

Oh, and why the Audubon print? Because Danielle considers Audubon one of her influences... and, like him, she is an unnervingly keen observer.
