The Co-Editors of Crab Creek Review (Kelli Russell Agodon and Annette Spaulding-Convy) are awarding the Crab Creek Review 2011 Editors' Prize to Portland, OR poet and MFA student, Cindy Stewart-Rinier, for her poem, "Pre-K Pollock" (2011 v.2). Our annual Editors' Prize is awarded for the best poem, short story, or creative non-fiction essay published by Crab Creek Review in a given year. Congratulations, Cindy!
