The deadline for applications for SILCS 2013 is this Friday, Feb 8. However, given the blizzard that is scheduled to hit, there may be no one in the office, especially later in the day. If you have any problems submitting your application, don't worry--there will be a grace period through the end of Monday for anyone who has trouble. Just drop us an email letting us know.

Congratulations are in order for Geffrey Davis, our Associate Director, who just won the 2012 Wabash Poetry Prize with his poem, "What I Mean When I Say Elijah-Man"
"Geffrey’s poem, which will appear in the Sycamore Review’s Winter/Spring issue, dares to entwine issues of family and fealty with those of faith. We’re reminded that all hurt is necessarily verbed, always a “hurting” toward, and that only poise in the face of such driving pain makes poems. Even in our age of requisite cynicism, the poem affirms that skepticism can break the heart. All this in a handful of supple couplets? But how?"Check out the poem at the Sycamore Review.
