Happy news today that my poem “Elemental Musics: Selkirk Mountains” won first prize ($500) in Musicworks’ 2016 Sonic Geography writing contest. Musicworks is a journal dedicated to developing audiences for experimental music. The poem, which responds to the sounds of mountain trees, winds, creeks and fire, is included in my forthcoming collection of poems about music, Helpless Angels (Thistledown Press, 2017).
