Fromer Award Winner, our own SIPOET! Marguerite Rivas sipoet Oh Guys, Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. I had a wonderful time. It was a beautiful ceremony held in the Newhouse Galleries at Snug Harbor. I was so proud to be a StatNislander yesterday when the woman who introduced me, a member of the awards committee, mentioned that she saw the island in a different way through my eyes. I read the Prologue to my StatNisland epic (a work in progress), my poem about the redcoat retreat from StatNisland, and two others. Thanks so much for your good vibes. I was so nervous -- still waiting for them to call me up and take back the award!
Take care,
