Philip Gross wins the T.S. Eliot Prize!

Because it could not happen to a better writer, a writer’s writer, who Wordamour has had the pleasure of working with (he was my generous editor for the essay, “Storming the Garret,” which appeared in the issue of Writing in Education he guest edited), of attending conferences with (Great Writing 2007), of reading with her children (my oldest was a great fan of his book, Marginaliens; he is also a wonderful children’s writer) and who she looks forward to working with on the editorial board of Professional and Higher.
