I'm thrilled to report the publication date of Zephyr, my second book of poetry: September 2010. This book has been a labor of love for the past six years. I also wondered if it would ever make its way into the world. My friend and fellow poet, Kim Addonizio, said yes, yes, but I still wondered.
Here is the press release. Just so happy to share the news:
August 7, 2009
We are pleased to announce the winner of our 2009 poetry book prize.
Tom C. Hunley, Director of Steel Toe Books, selected ZEPHYR by Susan Browne as winner of the Editor's Prize. Browne's poems have both heart and smarts, both gravitas and a sense of humor...a keen and compassionate eye.
Founded in 2003, Steel Toe Books publishes one to three single-author poetry collections per year. Our authors have been featured on Garrison Keillor's radio program, "The Writer's Almanac," on Ted Kooser's newsletter, "American Life in Poetry," as well as on Poetry Daily and Verse Daily. Our books have been reviewed in fine publications such as The Briar Cliff Review, The Comstock Review, Cranky, Diner, The Green Hills Literary Lantern, The Midwest Book Review, New Orleans Review, Poet Lore, Rattle, Review Revue, Rhino, Small Press Review, and Verse.
