Esther Kamkar co-wins Poetry Fellowship 2008

Esther Kamkar (above) of Palo Alto and Sarah Phoenix of Redwood City were this year’s co-winners for the Richard Maxwell Fellowship in Poetry. Judges noted the competition of worthy poets made the decision difficult, even as they agreed on co-winners rather than a single winner.

The fellowship provides free access to all conference readings, workshops and seminars. Each winner will receive a signed copy of one book, dinner with faculty, and a feature in the open reading.
