Imagine my surprise when I read a tweet about winning an award. I was stunned.


Here is what they say on their website


"While there are many excellent writers to consider from the nominees for the Peevbody Award, the very meaning of the award is linked intrinsically to the dedication of the recipients. For that reason, we select from among the deserving, individuals who embody everything it is to truly be a penman or penwoman.

This November we have the honor of awarding the Peevbody to a man whose commitment to writers has nearly spanned two decades.


We agree and firmly believe not only does John M. Poindexter deserve to be in the running for the award, but he deserves to win the award and be in the running for the 100 USD Writers Grant to be awarded next September.

"One Less Peevish Writer"

Not one of us would be a writer without our teachers. They leave a mark across generations and can never be recognized enough for the work they do. But let's try anyway shall we?

So, John M. Poindexter, here's your Peevbody Award for Outstanding Support of Writers!"











I wish to thank the Editors of Peevish Penman for this prestigious award.


I just hope I can get a novel published before one of my students, not that I would be upset, but I just don't want to take the ribbing from them.

Mr. Poindexter was an inspiring teacher of mine almost fifteen years ago. He had ways of making that one student that just wanted to hide in a cornor not to be seen, to be seen in a light everyone seen. He was there for his students as a person when a student didn't need him as a student. He knew just what to say and when to say it. I was one of those students for a long time, but once he saw my talent as a writer, I became the person I am proud to be now. Thank you Mr.P, you may not even remember what you said or did for me, but I do and it made an impact that I'll never forget. I can't wait for you to teach my daughter.
