Local poet and novelist Miriam Levine has won the 2007 Autumn House Poetry Prize, selected by Mark Doty. The award includes publication of her book, "The Dark Opens," and $2,500. The book has recently been published.

Autumn House , based in Pittsburgh, is one of those increasingly common poetry publishers; namely, the nonprofit kind. But they try to publish and edit carefully, bringing out real books by real poets. This year, they inaugurate a fiction series.

Miriam Levine is professor of English emeritus at Framingham State College and lives part of the year in Arlington, part in Florida. Her books include a memoir, "Devotion," which I reviewed in the Globe in 1993 ("...this delicate memoir, made of sentences so nearly perfect that they take your breath away"). Also a novel, "In Paterson," a nonfiction book, "A Guide to Writers' Homes in New England), and three previous poetry collections. Here is her website, which includes one of her poems. Find another of her poems here.
