Like a proud parent, I am delighted to share with you a couple of announcements about two of our contributors.
Paula Berman's poem from the winter issue, Clotho Visits the Local Yarn Store, has been nominated for a 2010 Rhysling Award for Poetry, given by the Science Fiction Poetry Association. The final award will be announced on at Readercon 21 in Burlington, Massachusetts in July, so our needles and fingers are crossed in the meantime for Paula. Either way, the poem will be included in the 2010 Rhysling Anthology. What a wonderful accomplishment for Paula.
And earlier this week, Ravelry announced that Mari Muinonen's Sylvi had won the 2009 Bobby Award for Best Use of Texture in a Project.
Thank you on Mari's bahalf to everyone who voted for her. I think that's pretty neat, and have a Sylvi of my own to prove it.
