Claudia announcing the winner of the Tree Press chapbook contest.
Judge Matt Tierney felt it was tight enough to also give mention to Lesley Strutt’s Elbow Grease as runner up.
The winner was “Winter Music” marked by restraint and tenderness, a tension between inner tranquillity and the outer chaos.
That winning chapbook was by MaryLee Bragg (left). Congrats!
Last year’s competition for a chapbook-sized manuscript was judged by Jason Camlot and won by David Blaikie. This one too will be put out by Tree Press.
