Escargot Cult Award - $400
Laurie Dunn "Window Box"
the [mailsnail] gang scraped together a "modest cash prize" ($300? $400?) as a sort of lifetime achievement award for the Canadian poet Andy Suknaski... (this is the second attempt to award one to one of our heroes, the first one was turned down! (by Gerry Gilbert))
Andy is famous for dropping poems from airplanes & leaving them on mountain-tops, etc. & has quite a few books to his credit (even some concrete/visual poetry!)
next year: The Babynous Cult!
