“Discovery"/Boston Review Poetry Contest Winners Announced

Now in its fifth decade, the “Discovery"/Boston Review Poetry Contest is designed to attract large audiences to poets who have not yet published a book. Over the decades this contest has discovered such poets as Marilyn Hacker, Michael Collier, Mary Jo Salter, and Greg Orr.

And now, drum roll please...time to announce the “Discovery"/Boston Review Poetry Contest winners in 2010: Chelsea Jennings, of Seattle, WA; Brandon Kreitler, of Brooklyn, NY; Tanya Olson, of Durham, NC; and Camille Rankine, of New York, NY. Congrats to all!

The contest was judged by Nick Flynn, Susan Howe, and Claudia Rankine. Timothy Donnelly, poetry editor at Boston Review, and Tracy K. Smith served as co-screeners. The winners have been awarded a reading at the Poetry Center, publication in Boston Review, and $500 each. The Joan Leiman Jacobson Poetry Prizes awarded are, for the third year, presented by Boston Review.

The two runners-up are Alyson Sinclair, of Brooklyn, NY; and Jennifer Tamayo, of Baton Rouge, LA.

The winners will read at the 92nd Street Y on May 10.
