Congratulations to Whiting Award winner Ciaran Berry!

Prairie Schooner published four poems by Ciaran Berry--"Moth Myth," "Cuckoo Spit," "A Magpie" and "High Summer at the Seafront at Portrush"--in our Summer 2004 Issue. Now we've gotten the news that Berry has received the prestigious Whiting Award, given to authors with "abundant promise of future work" according to the description in this NYT account. Our heartfelt congratulations to Berry, author of The Sphere of Birds, on this exceptional honor.
