2009 Transcontinental Award chosen

The winner of this year's Transcontinental Poetry Award is Shannon Hamann, a former resident of Brooklyn, New York.

Shannon Hamann (1966-2004) received an MFA from the University of Iowa’s Writer’s Workshop. His poetry appeared in The Atlanta Review, The Gettysburg Review, The Massachusetts Review, The Colorado Review, The New York Quarterly, Zyzzyva and many others. A chapbook of his early poems was bilingually published in Italy under the title, L’immaginazione violenta, in a limited edition. Recognition of his work included a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, a Steinbeck Fellows Grant, and shortly before his death a travel grant to Japan from the NEA.

His collection will be published in 2011 in an edition of 1000 copies plus overage.

Be well
