James Richardson, a poet who specializes in short verse and aphorisms, has won the $50,000 Jackson Poetry Prize.
Poets & Writers Inc., a nonprofit organization and resource center for creative writers, announced Wednesday that Richardson had been honored for his "distinct, lively, and apparently effortless" work. Richardson's books include "By the Numbers" and "Vectors."
The award was started in 2007 and is given to an American poet of "exceptional talent who deserves wider recognition."
Previous winners include Harryette Mullen and Elizabeth Alexander.
