meet the judges!

January 5, 2018

The 2018 Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest won’t start accepting submissions for until March 1, 2018, but in anticipation of that date, you might want to acquaint yourself with the two distinguished poets who will serve as the 2018 contest judges: Richard Widerkehr and Jane Wong.

Richard Widerkehr’s new book of poems, In The Presence Of Absence, recently came out from MoonPath Press. He earned his M.A. from Columbia University and won two Hopwood first prizes for poetry at the University of Michigan. He has one other collection of poems, The Way Home (Plain View Press), and three chapbooks, including Her Story of Fire (Egress Studio Press). Tarragon Books published his novel, Sedimental Journey. Recent work has appeared in Rattle, Arts & Letters, Bellevue Literary Review, and Measure. Other work is forthcoming in Atlanta Review, The MacGuffin, and Chiron Review.

Jane Wong’s poems can be found in Best American Poetry 2015, Pleiades, American Poetry Review, Third Coast, and others. A Kundiman fellow, she is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize and fellowships from the U.S. Fulbright Program, the Fine Arts Work Center, and Bread Loaf. She is the author of Overpour (Action Books, 2016).
