stephanie roberts finalist A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry

October 17, 2020, the Quebec Writers’ Federation announces rushes from the river disappointment as a finalists for the A. M. Klein Prize for Poetry. It comes with a purse of $3,000.

This year’s jury was composed of poets Katia Grubisic of Montreal, and Ben Ladouceur and Hoa Nguyen, both of Toronto.

From the jury: “roberts speaks with clarity and certainty, in a firm and haunting voice. This is an author clearly driven by a need to articulate what is missed. She is unafraid to end a poem abruptly and to let the quiet that follows do some of the speaking. She’s also clearly having fun – with physics, with form, with the second grammar of the line break, and with memories joyous and shocking and neither and both.”
