UNDERSHORE is the winner of the Lightscatter Press Prize, chosen by Diana Khoi Nguyen (2022). Alive with formal daring, the poems in UNDERSHORE examine the speaker’s ongoing grief following the loss of her mother. The book engages the botanical world, shorelines, desire, intimacy, and grief, all to reveal the unexpected and inevitable way these concerns merge into one another through language’s alchemy. (96 pp.) ISBN 978-1-7364835-2-7
