2012 Wabash Poetry Prize

Posted on January 30, 2013

Congratulations are in order for Geffrey Davis, our Associate Director, who just won the 2012 Wabash Poetry Prize with his poem, "What I Mean When I Say Elijah-Man"

Geffrey’s poem, which will appear in the Sycamore Review’s Winter/Spring issue, dares to entwine issues of family and fealty with those of faith. We’re reminded that all hurt is necessarily verbed, always a “hurting” toward, and that only poise in the face of such driving pain makes poems. Even in our age of requisite cynicism, the poem affirms that skepticism can break the heart. All this in a handful of supple couplets? But how?

Check out the poem at the Sycamore Review.
