Jeff Latosik wins P.K. Page Award

This is awesome. Jeff Latosik is a very talented young poet, and I'm happy to see that he's already garnering the praise of his elders, not to mention prizes. Here's some background on the award:

The P. K. Page Founders’ Award for Poetry recognizes the excellence of The Malahat Review’s contributors by awarding a prize of $1,000 to the author of the best poem or sequence of poems to have appeared in the magazine’s quarterly issues during the previous calendar year. The winner, to be chosen by an outside judge who is recognized for his or her accomplishment as a poet, is announced annually just prior to the publication of The Malahat Review’s Spring issue.

He's wearing a stupid hat and making a stupid expression and this is very very much not Jake.

Of course he's not Jake. What a stupid thing to say.

And I like his hat. On him.
