Congrats to Oliver de la Paz for winning the Akron Poetry Prize. His book, titled Requiem for the Orchard, will be out in spring ’10! Woo hoo!

Love this.


"I’m both an entrepreneur and a brand," he said. "Being in the center of my universe is important to me. That’s what Twitter lets me do. . . . I want to get out in front of the conversation."
