Hope Wabuke Bio Pic

I am extremely honored to be selected as the winner of the 2018 Locked Horn Press Poetry Chapbook Prize for my collection her. Many thanks to the lovely Locked Horn Press editors and many props to all the other wonderful poets who submitted work and whose writing I can’t wait to check out.

New Piece Up at The Root


For The Root, I write my annual year-end round up of 16 wonderful books published by black authors in 2017. Others great ones I would have loved to include are Bunk, by Kevin Young, The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin, Ordinary Beast by Nicole Sealey, I’m So Fine, A List of Famous Men & What I Had On by Khadijah Queen, & Lower Ed by Tracey Clayton…but don’t worry, I’m showing some love for those books elsewhere soon soon.
