2016 WHITE PINE PRESS POETRY PRIZE WINNER

White Pine Press is pleased to announce that Janlori Goldman has been awarded the Twenty Second Annual White Pine Press Poetry Prize for her manuscript Bread from a Stranger’s Oven. Selected by final judge Laure-Anne Bosselaar, the book will be published in the fall of 2017. Ms. Goodman also receives a cash prize of one thousand dollars. 

 

The contest finalists were Lisa Dordal for Mosaic of the Dark, Carrie Green for Double Brilliance, and Jane O. Wayne for Precarious Places.

Through her fervent lyrics, delightful odes and image-rich narratives, Janlori Goldman invites us into her world — and it is a deeply moving one. With fluid, vivid clarity, she valiantly stares at the past, and faces the present with a compelling mix of temerity and tenderness. Hers is a remarkable voice that is all at once passionate and exquisitely subtle. One leafs through Goldman’s book as one would amble through a museum, stopping for a detail here, an image there, perfectly happy to spend long hours “in that space, immersed in color and line.””
