Congratulations to Alicia Mountain
Former TSR contributor Alicia Mountain's poetry debut, 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
