Nick Courtright’s first book of poems, Punchline, was a National Poetry Award finalist and a book Boston Review editor Timothy Donnelly calls "nothing short of a knockout." Punchline aims to assist poetry in reclaiming its age-old position as not just a literary form, but a means to ask humanity’s largest questions, and perhaps even offer some answers to our most profound (and confounding) spiritual problems.
Julie Choffel's first collection of poems, The Hello Delay, was selected by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge for the 2011 Poets Out Loud Prize. Choffel's work takes apart our language and puts it together again, opening the world of the everyday to make the familiar feel unreal and then intimately connect us with the impossible. The poems of The Hello Delay are like the voice in the back of your head, resisting common meaning and reminding us of the strangeness of living.
