Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Greg McBride Wins Liam Rector Prize (Terence Winch):


There is justice in this world after all. Greg McBride was a "winner" before contests were invented. His poetry is brilliantly heart struck and alive with intelligence. I love the photos of the young Greg here also. INNISFREEPOETRYJOURNAL(Greg's literary magazine)is a contribution to American Letters. And Greg is a contribution to poetry. Thanks Terence for this notice.

I echo Grace. This is a wonderful poem - I can't wait to read the whole book.

And I feel that confluence: Greg is a new friend, and Liam...well, Liam, god rest your difficult, ornery, tactless, bombastic, lovely and much-loved soul. We all miss you.

Lawyer turned poet?! I look forward to reading his book. God damn, Liam is beautiful in that video.

One of the great and obvious benefits of the New American Poetry and of this website is in being made aware of poets whose work one might not encounter otherwise. For me, this post is a perfect example. I shall be reading more of Greg McBride's work, that is for sure.

Also, I did enjoy Liam's encounter with Bill O'Reilly.

I thank you for all this pleasure, Terence.

Once again Winch, you enlighten, engage, and generally elevate the conversation about contemporary poetry. Thanks.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
