There are a couple pieces on Sean O’Brien winning the U.K.’s Forward Poetry Prizes award for the Best Collection…for his third time.
- “Sean O’Brien Becomes Third Time Recipient of U.K.’s Top Poetry Prize,” by Sheveta Bansal for AHN.
- “Poet Sean O’Brien wins unique hat-trick of Forward prizes,” by John Ezard for The Guardian.
“‘Leaves of Grass’ Still Growing, Inspiring,” by Diane Ackerman for NPR, is a great piece on Walt Whitman and why his words are still vital to poets today. Personally, he’s one of the best. Seriously.
