ANNE PIERSON WIESE AWARDED AMY LOWELL TRAVELING SCHOLARSHIP

I am thrilled to announce that Anne Pierson Wiese, my partner of many years, has been chosen to receive the prestigious Amy Lowell Traveling Scholarship.

Anne’s previous honors include the Walt Whitman Award from the Academy of American Poets, and the Discovery/The Nation Poetry Prize.

The Traveling Scholarship, established by the poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925), supports adventures abroad for gifted American-born poets.

Previous winners include Elizabeth Bishop, Stanley Kunitz, Adrienne Rich, Kenneth Rexroth, Galway Kinnell, Henri Cole and Mary Jo Salter.
