So Hump was longlisted today in the poetry category of the The ReLit Awards, whose slogan is "Ideas, Not Money."
There are 69 other poets on the longlist, so it's a LONG longlist, but being nommed for the ReLit was one of the small dreams I had before publishing a book...so I'm sort of blissed out.
Did I mention the prize is a ring? And that I enter the only OTHER lit prize that awards a ring (Prairie Fire's Bliss Carman Prize every GODDAMN year?)
The shortlist - typically seven books per category - comes out at the end of August.
