A warm congratulations to Cimarron contributor Danielle Hanson, whose second poetry collection, Fraying Edge of Sky, has been named winner of the 2017 Codhill Poetry Award. Of the work, poet Oliver de la Paz states, “The precise language of the poems conjures up the overlooked details of a world that, in its hurry, will miss them. The light in a bucket of water, the ribbon-like fog, the small mice who are angelic in their infestations—all are an inventory of the miraculous that Hanson’s truly original voice urges us to hear and to hold close.” Order your copy today!
