gravity changes zach powersBOA Editions has announced spring publications of the winners of the Isabella Gardner Poetry Award, the BOA Short Fiction Prize, and the A. Poulin Jr. Poetry Prize.

Gravity Changes by Zach Powers was awarded the 2015 BOA Short Fiction Prize. The collection of fantastical, off-beat stories views the quotidian world through the lens of the absurd. The stories take wide steps outside of reality as they find new ways to illuminate truth.

Bye-Bye Land by Christian Barter, winner of the Isabella Gardner Poetry Award, “is a medley of voices in dialogue with each other [ . . . ] that represents a mind at work as it considers the destructiveness of human nature, the hypocrisy and artifice of the American dream.”

When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities by Chen Chen won the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. In this debut, “Chen Chen investigates inherited forms of love and family [ . . . ] all from Asian American, immigrant, and queer perspectives.”
