Nothing is Finished Scholarship

 

Nothing is Finished


This scholarship is given in honor of a poet who inspired all of us. Candor, courage, discipline and great spirit were a pack of wild dogs always at his side. Sharp tongued and fearless, these beasts would sniff out the lazy poem, the well mannered poem, the politically correct poem. When praise was due, his entourage would sing freely of such greats as Auden, D.H. Lawrence, Etheridge Knight, Tomas Tranströmer.

If these qualities speak to you, please apply. An aching heart wouldn’t hurt.

“I got deeper and deeper into the world of poetry,” he said, “simply because it was the only thing that stayed constant in my life continuously, year after year, and then decade after decade.”
