Alicia Mountain Wins Poetry Prize
Alicia Mountain's (MFA 2015) first collection, HIGH GROUND COWARD, has been awarded the 2017 Iowa Poetry Prize.
"Her voice is intimate, brash, always precise, heartbreaking in both its vulnerability and its authority. These poems are carried away by both lust and intelligence—this poet understand desire." —Brenda Shaughnessy, 2017 Iowa Poetry Prize Judge
Read three poems from HIGH GROUND COWARD (Spring 2018, University of Iowa Press) that first appeared in the Summer 2015 issue of The Southhampton Review.
