Cisewksi’s Ghost Fargo was chosen by Franz Wright for the 2008 Nightboat Poetry Prize, and Wilson’s Poems of the Black Object (Futurepoem) won Publishing Triangle’s 2010 Thom Gunn Award for Gay Poetry and the 13th Annual Asian American Literary Award for Poetry (he also was brought up in our 2008 Year in Review. Both poets offered up poems from their collections as well as new works in progress. Check out our video coverage of the event below.
