time_shark points out on his blog that the Poetry Foundation blog has a positive write-up about science fiction poetry.

Cathy Park Hong wrote a brief post highlighting the work of Andrew Joron, who not only won the Rhysling Award three times, he was one of the first winners of the award back in 1978. This was also the year the Science Fiction Poetry Association was born under the vision of our founder, Suzette Haden Elgin.

I found it refreshing to see such a positive write-up of sf poetry from a place like the Poetry Foundation.

Also, I do want to mention that in the years I've been sending out solicitations for Rhysling nominee congratulatory ads, this is the first time Poetry magazine responded. They e-mailed me a "maybe," which even though it didn't firm into an actual ad, was encouraging. I was delighted someone on the staff actually considered the idea, however briefly.
