I received notification yesterday that I was not one of the finalists for the 2006 Robinson Jeffers Tor House Prize for Poetry. The letter states that they received over 2,300 poems from 46 states, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries. The winner was Eric Leigh of San Francisco for his poem “Last of the Midnight Lullabies.” It was odd that among the four honorable mentions that two of them were also from San Francisco: Karen Carissimo and Melissa Stein.

I have not received confirmation from Yemassee that they received my acceptance email and Word attachments. I plan to try and contact them via telephone to confirm that they received my email.
