The Crashaw Prize

The news came, coincidentally, as I was in the middle of Jared Stanley’s excellent Book Made of Forest, winner of the prize three years ago. I’m humbled to learn that I’ve just been shortlisted for the Crashaw Prize at Salt Publishing — having been reading Salt poets and writers for years, it’s an incredible honor, most of all for the time spent alongside poets whose work I admire so much, such as Luke Heeley and Caleb Klaces. I’m excited to get to know these new voices, too– even from just this first look, the list runs deep with talent, and the pleasure of discovery, no matter how the process ultimately turns out, will be ripe.

My thanks to Salt.
