Hats Off! to Ross White, co-winner of the Sexton Poetry Prize for the best unpublished poetry collection by an American poet. Ross wins $1,500 and publication of his manuscript, Charm Offensive, by Eyewear Publishing. The other winner is Sarah Bridgins for Death and Exes. "Every word seemed personal and deeply felt, as if both of these poets urgently needed to tell me what they were thinking," says final judge Lloyd Schwartz. "as if each writer was engaged in the process of discovering in the course of a poem what it was they each had to say."
