Claire Wahmanholm
Pre-order now for November!

The winner of the 2018 Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry maps an alien but unnervingly familiar world as it accelerates into cataclysm. Here refugees listen to relaxation tapes that create an Arcadia out of tires and bleach; here the alphabet spells out disaster and devours children. The result is a collection that both beguiles and wounds.

Claire Wahmanholm is the author of Wilder, selected by Rick Barot as winner of the Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry, and Night Vision, winner of the 2017 New Michigan Press/DIAGRAM chapbook competition. She lives and teaches in the Twin Cities.
