2007 Chapbook Award Winner!

After difficult deliberation, the editors of Floating Bridge Press have selected Holly J. Hughes of Indianola, Washington as the winner of our 2007 chapbook competition for her poetry collection, Boxing the Compass.

Our finalists are:

John Glowney of Seattle, Boys in a Speeding Car
Erin Malone of Seattle, What Sound Does it Make?
Marjorie Manwaring of Seattle, Magic Word

We look forward to publishing Boxing the Compass in June, and invite you to attend our Chapbook Award Reading on Tuesday, June 26, at 7:00 pm at Hugo House, 1634 Eleventh Ave in Seattle's Capital Hill neighborhood. The event will be free. Winner and finalists will read and a reception and book signing will follow.

Congratulations to Holly and our finalists! And thank you to everyone who submitted manuscripts this year--it is a pleasure to rediscover the breadth and talent of our Washington State poetry community.

--The Editors
