Auburn Witness Poetry Prize 2021

I was over the moon to learn “Slouching like a velvet rope” won the Auburn Witness Poetry Prize Honoring Jake Adam York for 2021, and very blessed to have shared a stage with the judge, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Jericho Brown, in October 2021.

It’s of course only now I have time to post any of the reading photos here on my web site….
