Midwest Chapbook Series Award

G.C. Waldrep has chosen the chapbook, BLOOM, by Rob Schlegel (Iowa City, IA), as the winner of this year’s Midwest Chapbook Series Award. It will be published either late this year, or early next year, in time for AWP.  

It was an amazing year of great work, and Waldrep chose three runners-up:

Penumbra, by Serena Chopra (Denver, CO)

Elegy for the End of a Month, by Adam Clay (Kalamazoo, MI)

The Wolf Centos, by Simone Muench (Chicago, IL)

And honorable mention:

A Marathon of Deletions, by Michael Robins (Chicago, IL)

We really wish we had the capability to publish all five of these excellent and very different chapbooks.

Is this for 2010? Why have they not published these results (as promised) on the Laurel Review website? It would be nice if they would notify people on a timely basis... sigh... I really have been checking the LR website daily since August 1st. Nothing. They still have the contest flyer on their front page, with no mention that winners have been announced... I kept thinking, well maybe they're just dragging their heels... Heavy sigh.

Yes, this is for 2010. I'm one of the editors, and I don't have the codes to update the website (which are around the office somewhere I'm sure) . . . so I thought posting it here would take care of it. Apologies for the frustration it caused you.
