Last year, Donald Revell picked his wife's student's manuscript as winner of this contest.  Revell was also visiting at the Iowa Writers Workshop when Joshua Kryah was a student there.

Check out the guidelines and judge for this year's money gathering effort.  We all remember Brenda Hillman from the Revell fiasco (scroll down) a few years back, right?  Plus, we all recall her record as "judge" in the Sawtooth and Georgia contests.

So it's not surprising to see this strange new twist in the guidelines for what was already a questionable poetry contest: is not a current or recent (within the past two years) student of the judge

Poets, I do hope you realize that Nightboat is practically PROMISING you that Brenda is going to pick one of her former students.  Please don't be Good Germans (to quote her quote).

"You especially have to be hurt like hell before you can write seriously. But when you get the damned hurt, use it -- don't cheat with it. -- Ernest Hemingway
