Today we are happy to share the news of past contributor Pam Houston. Pam’s memoir “Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country” was just published by W. W. Norton & Company in January of 2019. Reminiscing about her life living in the Colorado Rockies, Pam discusses the beauty and pain of human life and her ties to the earth, specifically her 120-acre ranch. The memoir not only includes her essays but also 12 of the author’s own black and white photographs.
The book can be purchased here, and information about her signing event at Bookshop Santa Cruz can be found here.
We are happy to announce that past contributor Karen Skolfield from Issue 17, an Army veteran and writing instructor at UMass Amherst, has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the Barnard Women Poets Prize. The prize, given in collaboration with W.W. Norton & Company, will include the publication of her winning collection of poems Battle Dress, in addition to a cash prize and a reading at Barnard upon the release of the volume. Congratulations Karen!
