Gival Press announced that Sarah Machinak is the latest winner of the 9th Annual Oscar Wilde Award (2010) for “the best previously unpublished original poem written in English that relates GLBT life.”

Her poem “L.B.A.” was chosen by last year’s winner, Chino Mayrina. The award carries a cash prize of $100.

We’re also happy to report that one of our 2010 Writers Fellows, Julie Weber and 2009 Lambda Award finalist Michael Montlack, both received honorable mentions. Good job guys! Hosky would be proud.
