Red Mother has been awarded the 2020 Whirling Prize in Poetry!
The Whirling Prize is presented by Etchings Press, a student-run publisher at University of Indianapolis. The prize is awarded each fall to two books that demonstrate an excellent and compelling response to a theme that students select. The theme for 2020 was horror.
In 2021, University of Indianapolis’ Hullabaloo Press will print broadsides inspired by Red Mother. I will also be participating in a podcast interview conducted by the competition’s student judges.
I’m honored and thrilled that Red Mother was selected to receive this award.
