And the Ellie Goes To...

Poetry magazine! Up for a National Magazine Award for "General Excellence, Print," Poetry beat out the likes of Lapham's Quarterly, The Paris Review, The Sun, and Virginia Quarterly Review for the coveted Ellie. This is the magazine's second award from the American Society of Magazine Editors', as the Poetry magazine podcast won an award in the Digital Media, "Podcasting" category. Congrats!
