I was glad I could attend this year’s awards event. It really makes a difference when you can hear the poets recite their works, even when they have a visual component.
I don’t remember who actually won, but here are my top three picks in each division:
“This Man, This Me” by Erik Rock
“The Other Eggs” by Morgan Taylor
“Phases of Our Dying Sun” by Erik Rock
“Burning Ballet” by Emma Boice
“Before Dawn” by Gabrielle Nadig
“Glass” by Mariah Reis
This annual collection always boasts great variety and is nice if you’re looking for a quick read. It’s available for free download from the library’s website.
