Almost release day for our poetry prize winner -- Uncommon Clay

We're working feverishly over here at Casey Shay Press, preparing for our first Mary Ballard Poetry Prize winner. The cover is finalized and the final proof will arrive this week.

Here is some advance praise for Uncommon Clay by Darlene Franklin-Campbell.

"This is a poet with a deep sense of not only nature but spirit. She brings rich native tradition into play here, in language that is strict and pure."
-- Jay Parini, Author of The Art of Subtraction: New and Selected Poems and Robert Frost: A Life

"Darlene Franklin-Campbell’s gem-like poems depict a people who know hard times."
-- Sherry Chandler, Author of Weaving a New Eden

“Darlene Franklin-Campbell adds her poetic voice, which sings, wails, remembers, mourns, and rejoices, to the literature of Appalachia.”
-- Elizabeth Oakes, Author of Mercy in the New World

The 2013 poetry competition will open to submissions in April! Keep watch here at the blog for the announcement!
