We’re pleased to announce the winner of the 2013 David Martinson – Meadowhawk Prize: Patches of Light by Chad Hanson.
Patches of Light, a collection of prose poems, covers a lot of ground, thematically and literally, with poems that move at ease across the High Plains, touching on subjects as various as the function of bird’s ears, an escaped lion, and listening to James Brown…a little bit of everything for everyone. Look for Patches of Light early next year.
Chad Hanson serves as Chairman of the Department of Sociology and Social Work at Casper College in Casper, Wyoming. His creative nonfiction titles include Swimming with Trout (University of New Mexico Press, 2007) and Trout Streams of the Heart (Truman State University Press, 2013).
Thanks to all the poets that submitted manuscripts this year; the number of superb submissions, made the reading enjoyable, yet made the choosing a difficult task. Thanks also to the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council for supporting this project.
Submissions for the 2014 David Martinson – Meadowhawk Prize will be accepted beginning March, 2014.
