Congrats Poetry Magazine!

Chicago's very own Poetry magazine has had its podcast chosen as a finalist in the National Magazine Awards for Digital Media (in the podcasting category, obviously). Other finalists include Harvard Business Review, The New Yorker, Slate, and Tablet. Clearly, they're in good company! This award is presented at the same time as the American Society of Magazine Editors' awards for print journalism -- which just so happens to be pretty important in the magazine industry. In other words, it's kind of a big deal. The winners will be announced in March. In the meantime, check out the monthly podcasts that got Poetry the nomination.
