The results of the 2018 Snowbound Chapbook Award

Tupelo Press is delighted to announce that Eduardo C. Corral has selected as winner of the 2018 Snowbound Chapbook Award:

 Your New Feeling is the Artifact of a Bygone Era 
 by Chad Bennett
 
From the Judge’s Citation by Eduardo C. Corral:
*
“Bright with unexpected phrasing, uncanny chants, and curious imagery, the poems in Your New Feeling is the Artifact of a Bygone Era make visible the queerness of language. The vulnerability and the vision are queer, too. And so is the struggle to hitch the self to pleasure and to the chaotic present. The nods to musicians and to writers and the formal range infuse the poems with a peculiar history and playfulness. Your New Feeling is the Artifact of a Bygone Era is a remarkable chapbook. Bravo!”

Chad Bennett is an assistant professor of English at the University of Texas at Austin.
