We are pleased to announce past SR contributor, Melissa Cundieff, will be debuting her poetry collection, Darling Nova, on March 8th of 2018. Darling Nova was the winner of the Autumn House Poetry Prize for 2017 by Autumn House Press. Alberto Rios—judge for 2017—wrote, “The voyage through these poems encompasses much—grief, love, humanness—but the narrative, the speaker, the events keep moving, so that we ourselves are moved.”
Darling Nova is available to pre-order through UPNE Book Partners or Amazon.
Most recently a finalist for the 2016 Four Way Books Intro Prize, the Akron University Book Prize, and the University of Wisconsin Press’s Brittingham and Pollack Book Prizes, Melissa Cundieff-Pexa received an MFA in poetry from Vanderbilt. Her poems appear or are forthcoming in places such as Best of the Net, NinthLetter, Linebreak, Mid-American, Bat City Review, The Adroit Journal, and Iron Horse Literary Review. She lives in St. Paul, MN with her family.
