MCW Poet Shangyang Fang has won the 2019 Gregory O’Donoghue International Poetry Prize. Shangyang was awarded first prize for his poem Argument of Situations. Congratulations, Shangyang! Details here.
Jane Miller is the author of the poetry volumes Thunderbird, A Palace of Pearls, Wherever You Lay Your Head, Memory at These Speeds: New & Selected Poems, August Zero, American Odalisque, and Who Is Trixie the Trasher? and Other Questions, all from Copper Canyon Press. Her honors include fellowships from the NEA and the Guggenheim Foundation, and she serves as advisor and jurist to numerous distinguished national book and poetry prizes. Jane Miller is the visiting poetry faculty at the Michener Center in Spring 2019.
“Reading Jane Miller’s poetry is like channel-surfing on acid: her deliberately interrupted narrative warps and weaves and makes the familiar strange and the strange recognizable as something you might have put away in a shoebox.”
— Terri Sutton, LA Weekly
