Chairman Ravi: 2012 Judging Is Rough
“There were numerous talented and persuasive entries of both poetry and prose that didn't make the finalist pool. They also deserve accolades and might have been finalists in any given year.
"We congratulate everyone who entered. We are honored to affirm your work.”
Long-time prose judge Terese Karmel put it this way: “This is the best collection of prose I've seen since I've been a judge -- it's going to be tough.”
