    ASPS 2002 POET OF THE YEAR
    Joseph Whitten
    Odenville, Alabama

    As one letter of recommendation stated: "Joe Whitten is a prolific and successful poet. He has won many poetry awards in both ASPS and Alabama Writers' Conclave competitions. "Mulled Memories," his latest collection, evokes the beauty of his native mountains, a theme echoed in his poetry over the past few years. I believe Joe well- deserves this award and will make us proud by his representation of Alabama poetry."


    PREVIOUS "POET OF THE YEAR" WINNERS...
    Because records are slippery rascals, ASPS plans to update a Poet of the Year listing in each "Sampler." Also, members can only be nominated for Poet of the Year once in ten years; this list could help us keep track. My records include these Poets of the Year:

    2001 Virginia Gilbert
    2000 Evelyn Hurley
    1999 Barry Marks
    1998 Betty Spence
    1997 Donna Jean Tennis
    1996 Miriam Morris
    1995 John Morris
    1991 Frances Howell Williams
    1988 Ruth Halbrooks


    Please send additions to this list to Donna Jean Tennis, poettennis@aol.com. Your help is appreciated!
